Description

Excerpt from The Essays of Elia: Selections: A Dissertation on Roast Pig; Detached Thoughts on Books and Reading; The South-Sea House; Old China

He was too fond of paradox, too much at the mercy of his-emotions or the mood of the hour, to be a safe guide always. But where no disturbing forces interfered, he exercised a faculty almost unique in the history of criticism.
