Landmarks of a Literary Life

1820-1892 (Classic Reprint)

€ 21.79

Excerpt from Landmarks of a Literary Life: 1820-1892 Notwithstanding the truth which underlies the French proverb, Quz` s`axmse s`accase, I think it is Often wise to own one`s fault without waiting for the arraignment Of another accuser. I find that in the following pages the personal pronoun I is more obtrusive than I thought it would be when, in my Opening chapter, I alluded to my intention Of keeping it very much in the background. These recollections have been produced under the impediments Of defec tive sight and an aficted right hand; consequently the handwriting was Often so execrable that my dim eyes read it with difficulty, and the patience Of printers must have been sorely tried. Therefore I could not give my work the prolonged personal revision which every manuscript demands from its author. Yet, on reection, I feel how nearly impos sible it would have been to relate what I had to tell without myself appearing on the scene.
