Books Info:

Sir Walter Ralegh free pdf Excerpt from Sir Walter Ralegh: The Stanhope Essay, 1897 There are certain characters apparent on the page of history which at a first glance seem to be treated with scant justice or with an extravagant kindliness. We find them dismissed with a curt note, assigned to a very little niche in the house of fame, and branded as insignificant: in which case we are left to wonder at the extraordinary and disproportioned vitality of such reputations in the popular mind. Or, again, it may happen that out of deference to fame they are treated at immoderate length, till we feel the comparative smallness of their actual achievement, when added to the lengthy narration of their lives, to be something in the nature of an anti-climax. The endowment of popularity, whether or not it be allied with true and lasting greatness, is always a difficult, elusive quality to estimate. Some have it in the highest degree- others not at all: and in any case mere popular favour is not in itself a thing of paramount importance. Influence upon national institutions, upon the mechanism of legal and political administration, upon public life and character - these are the proper gifts with which history credits the great- and it is clear that none of these, save the last, has any necessary connexion with the kindly notoriety given by tradition and story.
