Thomas Wentworth Higginson, The new world and the new book, XIII (search)
vista look more wide. The vaster the better; but there must be enough of it, at least, to convey a distinct sensation of background. Of course, when this background obtrudes itself into the foreground, it becomes intolerable; and such books as Burton's Anatomy of Melancholy are tiresome, because they are all made up of background, and that of the craggiest description; but, after all, the books which offer only foreground are also insufficient. I do not see how any one can read the essays of ranch. But, after all, the main preservative of knowledge is in the art of printing; and while the merely bookish man may never make a writer, there is nothing that so enriches prose-writing as some background of book-knowledge. In case of old Burton, just mentioned, the book-knowledge clearly mastered the man; and the same is the case with one who might perhaps have been the most fascinating of modern English authors had not his own library proved too much for him—the Roman Catholic Digby.
