And that is why, as the great critic has told us, with as much sagacity as iteration, Time is the true test, and the judgments of the High Court are taken, for so wearisome a period, to avizandum. The justice of the remark is never more evident than when we consider the fallibility of contemporary criticism.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
