Critical and Miscellaneous Essays
Thomas Babington, Lord Macaulay (1800–1859)
 
Macaulay’s Critical and Miscellaneous Essays were published originally in the Edinburgh Review; beginning with the essay on Milton, in the August number, 1825, and continuing for twenty years after, when the glittering series ended with the paper on the Earl of Chatham, in the October number, 1844. These essays, of which the glory is but a little tarnished, run the gamut of great historical and literary subjects. They include reviews of current literature, historical sketches and portraits, essays in criticism. They are distinguished by a certain magnificent cleverness; but they are lacking in human warmth, and in the sympathy which rises from the heart to the brain. They remain however a monument of what might be called a soldierly English style, with all the trappings and appurtenances of military rank.  1
