The Edinburgh Review  Or Critical Journal  Vol  2

Excerpt from The Edinburgh Review, or Critical Journal, Vol. 2: April 1803 July 1803 The whole hillory of dg ria, he conceives to be one continued illullration of the force and edicacy of the balancing fy em. It was by this {y em that its domineering in uence was abridged in the end of the fixteenth century. It was by this fyflem that it was redeemed from utter defiruction (principally by the exertions of England) in the war for the fuccellion of Charles VI.; and it was by the irrelillible force of this fyltem, that its deligns up on Holland were frultratcd in 1787, though it was then in cloth and friendly alliance with the power by whole interference its machinations were repreli'ed; and that England and l'rullia were enabled, in 1790, to defeat its compaet with Rul'fia, for the ex tirpation of theturkilh power. This laft event, which was aecom plilhed without expence or bloodlhed, is perhaps the molt lignal triumph of the balancing fy em, and the greatell proof of its increaf ing e icacy. What mull perplex M. Hauterive not a little, is, that it took place the very year at the French Revolution. The Auf trian power has been kept very much at its ancrent level of in uence and authority, by the contrary operation of four important events; the alliance with France in t7 56, and the gradual diminution of the Turkifh force, adding as much to its llrength and {ecurity upon one hand, as was taken away by the {ucce liive elevation of Rullia and Pru ia to the rank which they now hold in the great European community. Though Aufiria did take a part in the lirft partition of Poland in 772, M. Gentz afiirms, that it was with eat reluaance and refers to the pollhumous works of the late 'ng of Pru ia, for evidence that Jofeph was abfolutely for ced into that meafure by his afi'ociates.

The Edinburgh Review  Or Critical Journal  Vol  38

Excerpt from The Edinburgh Review, or Critical Journal, Vol. 38: For Feb. 1823-May 1823 Like moonlight on a troubled sea, Brightening the storm it cannot calm. We do' not believe Mr Moore ever writes a line, that in it self would not pass for poetry, that is not at least a vivid or harmonious commonplace. Lord Byron writes whole pages of sullen, crabbed prose, like a long dreary road that, however, leads to doleful shades or palaces of the blest. In short, Mr Moore's Parnassus is a blooming Eden; Lord Byron's is a ru ged wilderness of shame and sorrow. On the tree of know ledg e of the first, you can see nothing but perpetual flowers ancfverdure; in the last, you see the naked stem and rough bark; but it heaves at intervals with inarticulate throes, and you hear the shrieks of a human voice within.

Excerpt from The Edinburgh Review, or Critical Journal, Vol. 60: For July, 1834;;; January, 1835; To Be Continued Quarterly Though the disadvantageous circumstances above mentioned are not to be counted as merits, they may reasonably enhance the author's satisfaction in the approbation which his work has gained. They also enhance its value as an experimental work, in which is tried how far good poetry, of a different kind from that with which the world has long been pampered, may hope to win the public favour, even when not presented in an attractive form.

Excerpt from The Edinburgh Review, or Critical Journal, Vol. 131: For January April, 1870, to Be Continued Quarterly Mr. Froude nowhere claims the merit of judicial impartiality, nor does he care to weigh evidence in the calm and even scales which determine the value of conflicting testimonies and con tested facts. He is himself carried away by the passions of the age he is describing as strongly as if he had lived in it. He rushes to his conclusions, not by argument, but by intuition. His object appears to be to produce the strongest possible effect by an art not dissimilar from that of a great dramatist. The personages who figure in this history are invariably pre sented to the reader in the form they have assumed in Mr. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

The Edinburgh Review  Vol  137

Excerpt from The Edinburgh Review, Vol. 137: Or Critical Journal: For January, 1873;;; April, 1873; To Be Continued Quarterly To roll back the cloud of obscurity that has veiled, for eighteen centuries, the site of one of the most famous cities in the world, is a task not unworthy of the age. The labours of the men of the present time have given voice to the long silent hieroglyphics of Egypt; to the arrow-headed characters, cut in stone or impressed on clay tablets, by Persian and Assyrian scribes; and to the inscriptions of Phoenician kings. Chapters of ancient history, long regarded as hopelessly lost, arc in process of at least partial recovery. Few investigations are calculated to shed more light on the course and the causes of past events than the exploration of the deep-piled ruins of a city, of which the sages and rulers have influenced the course of human events more than the philosophers of Greece or the Emperors of Rome. It is, therefore, a fact in which Englishmen may take some degree of honest pride that, apart from any hope of gain or commercial impulse, funds have been raised by private subscription, adequate at least to commence, in a competent manner, the survey and exploration of Palestine.
