Excerpt from Readings in English Literature

A feature of this collection is the opportunity afforded to connect great pieces of criticism with the works criticised. Lycidas, for example, acquires a new interest in the light of Ruskin's interpretation; Carlyle's discussion of Burns, and Carlyle's and Macaulay's discussions of Boswell suggest new approaches to all these writers; and even Shakspere gains from a reading of Ben Jonson's memorial poem and Arnold's sonnet.
