Sintesi dell'editore

This is an essay from the Favorite Essays collection.

Here, in this unusual collection, are some of the greatest essays in Western literature. Witty, informative and imaginative, the topics vary from starvation in Ireland, fine China, the extension of railways in the Lake District, and the tombs in Westminster Abbey. A little like after-dinner monologues, they are passing thoughts expressed as journalism. Neville Jason reads with urbane clarity.

Recensioni editoriali

In his essay "On Going a Journey", William Hazlitt ponders just why he prefers to wander in nature all by himself. He hates to be too busy comparing notes to enjoy the experience itself, he concludes. This form of travel he differentiates from travel to cultural sites and abroad, all with their own sets of rules. Neville Jason's deep voice is flexible, easily bending to embody the tone of each great essay he performs in this collection. In this particular performance, Jason brings sophistication and maturity to Hazlitt's words. Together, they create a fascinating half hour of brain candy, perfect for a few moment's reflection in a busy day.

This Is A Very Well Composed, And Well Read Essay

I completely enjoyed this work. I would call it an essay on solitude and nature. There are various quotes of poetry of other individuals. I enjoyed the essay very much.

This is the first work that I can recall reading or listening to, of William Hazlitt. His style was elegant and pleasant. His writing in this case work reminded me of C. S. Lewis who, of course, is of the twentieth century.

The only concern I need to mention is the nature of his product. This may be my fault, but I thought I was purchasing more of a autobiographical summary. Indeed this work is reportedly authored by William Hazlitt and does reflect his personal attitude on various subjects. I enjoyed it very much, but it was only vaguely autobiographical. Thank You....
