Critical and Miscellaneous Essays, Vol. 2 of 7 free pdf Excerpt from Critical and Miscellaneous Essays, Vol. 2 of 7: Collected and Republished (First Time, 1839- Final, 1869) In the modern arrangements of society, it is no uncommon thing that a man of genius must, like Butler, 'ask for bread and receive a stone-' for, in spite of our grand maxim of supply and demand, it is by no means the highest excellence that men are most forward to recognise. The inventor of a spinning-jenny is pretty sure of his reward in his own day- but the writer of a true poem, like the apostle of a true religion, is nearly as sure of the contrary. We do not know whether it is not an aggravation of the injustice, that there is generally a posthumous retribution. Robert Burns, in the course of Nature, might yet have been living- but his short life was spent in toil and penury- and he died, in the prime of his manhood, miserable and neglected: and yet already a brave mausoleum shines over his dust, and more than one splendid monument has been reared in other places to his fame- the street where he languished in poverty is called by his name- the highest personages in our literature have been proud to appear as his commentators and admirers- and here is the sixth narrative of his Life that has been given to the world! Mr. Lockhart thinks it necessary to apologise for this new attempt on such a subject: but his readers, we believe, will readily acquit him- or, at worst, will censure only the performance of his task, not the choice of it.
