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.

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....
