ESSAYS OF ELIA

Henry Altemus, (1895).

Evoked with rare sensuality, the minutiae of everyday life ?Çô a card game in "Mrs Battle's Opinions on Whist", the ritual of saying "Grace Before Meat", the perils of lending books in "The Two Races of Men" ?Çô are all grist to his mill Essays of Elia certainly lends itself to repeated reading, and when Lamb's popularity was at its height, his Victorian and Edwardian readers could recite entire passages Thanks to this elegant new Hesperus edition, Charles Lamb's forgotten masterpiece is ripe for rediscovery
Charles Lamb, one of the most engaging personal essayists of all time, began publishing his unforgettable, entertaining Elia essays in the London Magazine in 1820; they were so immediately popular that a book-length collection was published in 1823 Inventing the persona of Elia allowed Lamb to be shockingly honest and to gain a playful distance for self-examination
