Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Augustan Ages The disabilities of a short essay like this are confessed in its aim, which is to review more than one literature of Western Europe during a period that Opens in the third quarter of the seventeenth century. The later limit varies in different cases. In France it is the death of Louis XIV.; in England the story goes fur ther With Pope and Swift, but is guided rather by schools and fashions than by strict chronology, Which may be misleading. As for some other countries, which fought the same battles as France and England, only many years in their wake, I have tried to pack, into what must be regarded as an appendix, the be ginnings of the great change, mental and formal, that overtook them also. This latter part has been pur posely written on a rather more compressed scale. It was impracticable to go too far into the eigh teenth century and it may be added, With no Wish to put off criticism, that the fitting of the countries, groups, and authors into this part of the series has been, as usual, carefully considered, and can be judged fairly when the companion volumes appear. The literature of prose and thought has preceded in each case, without any ambition to outline the course of pure philosophy. For in this period, while poetry declined, nothing less than criticism began to be organised, as well as prose in its newer cast. The history of style by itself would have no sense, without some remark on the shapes that the intellectual and rational movement took in letters. Les idees seules, says Bufi on, forment le fond da style. France formed her prose soonest; her writing was on the whole more noble and in?uential than that of any other land at the time; and therefore France has been put first, although England did more for science, and perhaps ultimately more for thought. The two great countries fill three-quarters of this volume, and the sway of the French and English models upon other nations occupies much of the sequel. Hence it is hoped that, however the workmanship comes short, the general design may be right, and the emphasis.
