Descripción Penguin Classics, New York, NY, 1986. Paperback. Very Near Fine in Wraps: shows only the most minute indications of use: just a hint of creasing near the upper corner of the front panel; the pages have tanned slightly; shows the mildest rubbing to the wrapper covers. The binding remains square and secure; the text is clean. Very close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 304 pages.Edited by Gerald Hammond. Penguin Classics Series. First Edition Thus [1986]; First Printing stated. A hardcover edition was published in 1984 by Carcanet. Trade Paperback. The 'History of the World' (which, unfortunately, is incomplete in this collection) is a masterpiece of despair and contempt for the vanity of the world. (It is simply criminal that this book isn't currently available in its entirety.) This 'history', written while Ralegh was in prison, is a recollection of human stupidity, a treatise on the ever-recurring consequences of the worship of power. (Note that this edition of 'Selected Writings' uniformly spells the name "Ralegh" instead of "Raleigh".) "Tyranny is more bold, and feareth not to be known, but would be reputed honourable: for it is prosperum et felix scelus, a fortunate mischief, as long as it can subsist. There is no reward or honour (saith Peter Charron) assigned to those, that know how to increase, or preserve human nature: all honours, greatness, riches, dignities, empires, triumphs, trophies, are appointed for those, that know how to afflict, trouble, or destroy it. Caesar and Alexander, have unmade and slain, each of them, more than a million of men: but they made none, nor left none behind them. Such is the error of Man's judgment, in valuing things according to common opinion." (Book Five, Chapter 2:2.iv). The Peter (or Pierre) Charron referred to here, I believe, is the friend of Montaigne who penned the skeptical 'Sagesse' and it is here, among these moralists, and not the historians, that Raleigh's book truly belongs. Like them, he uses Providence as a stick to beat senseless Man about the head, but for all that he seems to be without any real hope of deliverance. Nor does Ralegh simply spare himself. He call Courtiers (and Ralegh, especially with Elizabeth I, was indeed a courtier) vermin and says of the tyrant Dionysius and those gathered around him: "A cruel man he was, and a faithless; a great Poet, but a foolish one. He entertained Plato a while, but afterward, for speaking against his tyranny, he gave order to have him slain or sold for a slave. For he could endure no man, that flattered him not beyond measure. His Parasites therefore styled his cruelty, The hate of evil men; and his lawless slaughters, The ornaments and effects of his justice. True it is, that flatterers are a kind of vermin, which poison all the Princes of the World; and yet they prosper better, than the worthiest and valiantest men do: And I wonder not at it; for it is a world; and as our Saviour Christ hath told us, the world will love its own." (Book 5, Chapter 1, 4).Blood, sweat and tears on these pages, and not only those of others. As a man that flitted about the throne, our authors hands can't be entirely clean. His readers should be aware of that. But the main target of this contempt are Kings and those that lust after ruling and refuse to listen to anything 'unpleasant'. Of Darius, and the sound advice he was given by a Greek mercenary, our author says: "But this discourse was so unpleasing to Darius (who had been accustomed to nothing so much as to his own praises, and to nothing so little as to hear the truth;) as he commanded that this poor Grecian should be presently slain:" (Book 4, Chapter 2:4). It is no wonder that this contempt for his supposed betters landed him in prison of King James. (Our editor, Gerald Hammond, helpfully points out that James I found the History 'too saucy in censuring princes.') But it was this contempt for Kings, and perhaps also the underlining of their self-destructive vanity, that made him a favorite of the next genera. Nº de ref. de la librería 44716
