George Sampson has collected here some of William Hazlitt's finest works. The first four essays show him as the Boswell Lamb and the candid friend of Wordsworth and Coleridge. The next three are an extension of this group, forming a pleasant parallel to Lamb's Detached Thoughts on Books and Reading and his delightful essays on the old actors. The next three show a very attractive and original Hazlitt-Hazlitt the enthusiastic critic of fine pictures. And the last three show us Hazlitt savouring things of the world, rejoicing in the multitude of sporting crowds and in the solitude of lonely wanderings. This collection of Hazlitt's work by George Sampson was first published in 1917, we are now republishing it with a brand new biography.
