Excerpt from The Wisdom and Genius of the Right Hon. Edmund Burke: Illustrated in a Series of Extracts From His Writings and Speeches; With a Summary of His Life
The present volume proposes to relieve this embar rassment by givin g, under a systematic arrangement, the finer part of the works of Burke The plan adopted is a classification into chapters of the dif ferent subj ects which principally occupied the great statesman's attention; and a formation under each chapter, of a connected series of extracts the most remarkable for eloquence, argument, or style. The whole, with the biographical summary annexed, dis plays a con cise, and, it is submitted, a clear view of what was the luminous course of Burke's action and thought - what were his parliamentary and literary powers.
