Excerpt from The Collected Writings of Thomas De Quincey

The present volume continues and concludes the series of De Quincey's papers brought together in this edition of his writings as distinctively his essays in Literary Theory and Criticism.

In the first paper, entitled Schlosser's Literary History of the Eighteenth Century, we have, under the guise of a very severe review of parts of a voluminous German historical work, once of considerable notoriety among ourselves through an English translation, De Quincey's own impressions of a few of the eighteenth - century chiefs of English Literary History. Swift, Addison, and Pope are selected for general comment; after which there is a leap over a generation or more for a comparison of Fox and Burke as English orators, and a reiteration of De Quincey's very decided views on the question of the authorship of "Junius" and the character of Sir Philip Francis. In the next two papers, The Poetry of Pope and Lord Carlisle on Pope, with their appended Postscripts, there is a return to Pope, for that larger and more elaborate treatment which the subject deserved. The fact that we have two such long critical papers on Pope from De Quincey's pen, in addition to the more strictly biographical article on Pope which he contributed to the Encyclopædia Britannica, is worthy of attention. Pope, as the sovereign of the English Poetical Literature of the Eighteenth Century, had obviously fascinated De Quincey, as he still fascinates others on the same account. In De Quincey's case, however, it was, to a great extent, a fascination of dissent and antagonism.
