Excerpt from Beauty and the Beast

The wise philosopher who superintended the literature sold at his wife's shop, was marked by a trusting simplicity, and a habit of asking strangers to take up his bills. If Charles Lamb really wrote the metrical Beauty and the Beast for this philosopher, one can only hope that Lamb's trusting simplicity did not go without its reward. But the statement of Mr. Hazlitt appears to be more dogmatic than the circum stances warrant. It is not at all certain that Lamb wrote Beauty and t/ze Beast. At best, the subject seems part of the engaging science of Comparative Hypothetics. Lamb was a writer for children for them the author of dream-children pro duced his Adventures of Ulysses (with quite as much Chapman as Homer in them) and his Tales from S/zakspeare and his Prz'uce Dorus.
