Excerpt from English Seamen: Howard, Clifford, Hawkins, Drake Cavendish

The fourth volume, he writes, will contain the lives of Essex, Raleigh, Sir William Monson, Blake, and Monk. Then, not to extend unreasonably a work which was not intended by the publisher at first for more than two volumes, I Shall drop the biography and wind up in one volume more, with the Naval History from the Revolution in continuous narrative. A good pretext for this is, that the age of naval enterprise and adventure, and couse quently of personal interest, was past; and the interest henceforth becomes political, events are regarded, not with reference to the principal actors, as in Drakes time, but to their bearings upon the national affairs.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 428 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.9in.Excerpt from English Seamen: Howard, Clifford, Hawkins, Drake CavendishWriting to his friend Mrs. Hodson, on the 20th January, 1830, Southey tells her, I have engaged to compose a volume of Naval History in biographical form for the Cabinet Cyclopdia, not for love but for lucre, though it will be done lovingly when in hand. The volume grew into volumes. In 1838 he had still to write that he was getting through the admirals. Next year his strength broke down under the strain of incessant writing, and what was more fatal still, of reading continually through the walks which he was, with some difficulty, persuaded to take for the good of his health. The admirals remained a fragment. The whole work was to have included an introductory sketch of the Naval History of England down to the reign of Elizabeth. From that point, in the words of Southeys Preface, it may be best continued in a biographical form; because there are then materials for such biography, whereby we are enabled to understand how much depended upon the character of individual commanders. The introduction filled the whole of one volume, and overflowed much the greater part of a second. The biographies had extended into a fifth volume when the failure of Southeys intellect stopped his share of the work, at the end of the life of Sir William Monson.
