One of my favorite characters is Jaques, of whom Hazlitt says "Jaques is the only purely contemplative character in Shakespeare. He thinks, and does nothing. His whole occupation is to amuse his mind, and he is totally regardless of his body and his fortunes. He is the prince of philosophical idlers; his only passion is thought; he sets no value upon anything but as it serves as food for reflection. He can suck melancholy out of a song, as a weasel sucks eggs'; the motley fool, 'who morals on the time', is the greatest prize he meets in the forest."
He even gives a thumbnail description of Hamlet which reveals that Hamlet is us, a variety of "everyman" who lives in our skin now and again.
I love old books and "near great" authors. This book exemplifies both. Haslett lived in the great age of English Poetry, and was a disciple of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and a friend of William Wordsworth And Charles Lamb. Haslett was a popularizer of literature, but his primary original work was as an essayist and critic, perhaps the best of his era. He was also adept as a writer of biographical notes on his contemporaries, which perfectly fits his objective in this work.
