Description Early Reviews of Great Writers (1786-1832) de E Stevenson:

Excerpt from Early Reviews of Great Writers (1786-1832): Selected and With an Introduction The casual reader of the present day, who is accustomed, comfortably seated in an easy-chair, to obtain all information on current literature by turning over pages of some newspaper or magazine, is probably far from realizing the art of reviewing of practically a growth of this century. It is true that from 1680, when the Mercurius Librarius undertook to give "a faithful account of all books and pamphlets," a tolerably complete series of reviews of English literature can be got together, but they are for the most part mere notices of publication, with one or two extracts occasionally added, or else dismal summaries from which every particle of interest the original may have possessed has entirely evaporated. A vision rises up of the poor Grub Street hack who earned his scanty living by such work, sitting shivering and dinnerless in his garret, plodding his weary way through the long paragraphs, with his one shirt in the wash-tub, and the sheriff's officer waiting round the corner. Little was expected of him, no literary acumen, no originality, no comparisons or criticisms, not even style, only the power of producing the kind of summary the average school-girl makes of a chapter of Bright's History of England.
