“ Nr. Masson has succeeded in producing a series of criticisms in relation to
creative literature, which are satisfactory as well as subtile,-which are not only
ingenious, but which possess the rarer recommendation of being alsually just
But we pass over these Essays to that which is in the main a new, and, according
to our judgment, an excellent biographical sketch of Chatterton... This ' Story
of the Year 1770,' as Mr. Masson entilles it, stands for nearly 200 pages in his
rolume, and contains, by preference, the fruits of his judgment and research in
an elaborated and discursive memoir... Its merit consists in the illustration
offorded by Mr. Masson's inquiries into contemporary circumstances, and the
clear traces thus obtained of Chatterton's London life and experience.

Mr. Masson unravels this mystery very completely.I'IMEs, Nov. 4, 1856.
No one who reads a single page of Mr. Masson will be likely to content himself

with that alone. Ile will see at a glance that he has come across a man endowed.
with a real love of poetry; a clear, fresh, happy insight into the poet's heart ;
and a great knowledge of the historical connexion of its more marked epochs in
England. IIe has distinct and pleasant thoughts to utter; he is not above doing
his
very

best to utler them well; there is nothing slovenly or clumsy or untidy
in their expression ; they leap along in a bright stream, bubbling, sparkling, and
transparent.THE GUARDIAN, Nov. 5, 1856.
Worthy of being ranked among the very foremost of their class. . . The longest
and finest composition of the worka gem in literary biographyis its' Chat-
terton, a Story of the Year 1770. ... This singularly interesting and powerful
biography fills up this sad outline as it never was filled up before."

EDINBURGH WITNESS (edited by Hugh Miller), Aug. 3, 1856. His life of Chatlerton is a complete, symmetrical and marvellous work of art

. a classical biography.THE GLASGOW COMMONWEALTH, Aug. 16, 1856. «Will secure both attention and respect.”—EXAMINER, Sept. 6, 1850.

Very admirable criticisms, which show not only a thorough acquaintance with the works he criticises, but a deep sense of poetic beauty.'

DAILY NEWS, Aug. 5, 1856. We know not where to find a larger amount of discriminating, far-sceing, and genial criticism within the same compass.

THE WESTMINSTER REVIEW, July, 1856. Not only a series of biographical studies, but in some sort a philosophical history of English poetry from Shakspeare to Alexander Smith.

The LEADER, June 4, 1356. Distinguished by a remarkable power of analysis, a clear statement of the actual facts on which speculation is based, and an appropriate beauty of language. Those Essays should be popular with serious men.'
