Excerpt from Select Prose of Robert Southey: Edited With an Introduction

Some one has estimated that Southey's total pro duction in poetry and prose would fill not far from two hundred octavo volumes. All of his writings, Southey himself had no doubt, would be reverently assembled by a grateful posterity as a fitting monu ment to his genius and industry. More moderate persons believed that at least a dozen volumes of good prose matter could be gathered from his abun dant stock. But the passage of time has shown one possibility to be as remote as the other. It is doubt ful whether anybody since Southey' 5 death has taken the trouble even to read through all his prose. Of reprints in the last fifty years there have been, aside from the Life of Nelson, a volume of sketches of English Sea Heroes from the Naval History of England and one of selections from The Doctor. No attempt like the present has ever been made to give a representation of Southey's prose based on a survey of his entire output - reviews and all.
