Excerpt from Fame's Twilight: Studies of Nine Men of Letters
The revaluation, from time to time, of our lesser classics is one of the most necessary critical tasks, and the studies contained in this book are the outcome of an intimate acquaintance with the works named herein extending over a good many years. It is to such a re-examination of the manner and content of certain bodies of literary work, whose authors looked giants to their own contemporaries, that I have applied myself in the ensuing pages.
In this I do not think I have disobeyed Arnold's precepts - not to be led astray by historical considerations but to apply to everything the touchstone of the absolutely highest and best. Fashions in literature pass and reputations with them, but the reputations not always deservedly.
