Description : Pulitzer Prize-winning author Eudora Welty's writing and photography were the subject of more than one thousand reviews, of which over two hundred are collected here. From the first, reviewers loved Welty's language and disparaged her lack of plot. Their eager anticipation for the next book is rarely diminished by the shock of reading entirely different styles of writing. Her work was admired even as it challenged its readers. The reviews selected for reprinting here represent the diversity of Welty's reception and assessment. Reviews from small towns, urban centers, noted fiction writers, professional reviewers, academics, and everyday readers are included. The comments of reviewing rivals such as the New York Times and the New York Herald Tribune, Nation and New Yorker, when read side by side, reveal the nuances both of the reviewers and of the work of this important Southern writer.

Description : Excerpt from The Contemporary Review, Vol. 3: September-December, 1866 Hence it must surely be well that a man should now and then make some voluntary effort for others - something for which he receives nothing in return, and from the performance of which, therefore, he strives to exclude, so far as may be, all thought of self or of reward. The idea of duty and service, thus refreshed in his mind, will return with him to his ordinary avocations, abide with him in them, and confer dignity upon them. Moreover, there are many great works of benevolence which are wholly unconnected with the labours of any profession. However pure the motives, and however great the public utility of any professional man, there are a thousand other needs of humanity lying wholly outside the sphere in which he and those like him are engaged, and which his work has no tendency to meet.

Description : Excerpt from The Contemporary Review, Vol. 1: January-April, 1866 Of those Courts society in general, some years ago, knew and thought even less than now. The opponents of the movement of which we have been speaking had little love for them. Perhaps their notions on the subject could not be better expressed than in the language of their favourite poet, Cowper, who, after speaking of the heavy rod laid upon our forefathers by Rome, concludes with the words.

Description : Excerpt from The Contemporary Review, Vol. 50: July-December, 1886 Many of na are old enough to have witnessed the fierce struggles which have prevailed in Parliament touching the above measures. Ministries have been wrecked, Parties have been shattered, and the House of Commons has been forced to protect itself by stringent rules for the conduct of its proceedings and the restraint of its members; while reforms of various grievances earnestly desired by the people of England and Scotland, and of which there is now a long list of accumulated arrears, have been postponed in order to make way for the demands of Irish legislation. We might have been spared all these struggles in and out of Parliament had we sooner recognized the principle of self-govern ment for Ireland; while the British Parliament would have been free to clear 05 its arrears of legislation.

Description : Excerpt from The Contemporary Review, Vol. 40: July-December, 1881 There lies the whole essence of the tragedy; a grand idea that has been worked out into one of the masterpieces of our literature with that simple good faith which lends to the important scenes an almost Biblical impressiveness. All that is contained in the idea Marlowe gives us, but beyond this he does not attempt to go; it would have been a poetical error if he had done so, since nothing that he could have gained would have made amends for the stern, tragic reality he would have lost.

Description : Excerpt from The Contemporary Review, Vol. 54: July-December, 1883 The Elector Frederick was a prudent experienced prince, who had no desire to quarrel with the Sec of Rome; but he had seen into the infamy of the Indulgences, and did not mean to hand over one of his subjects to the summary process with which the Pope would have closed the controversy. The old Emperor Maximilian was a wiseman too. He was German to the heart, and the Germans had no love for Italian supremacy. Pregnant sayings are reported by Luther of Maximilian: There are three kings in Europe, ' he once observed, the Emperor, the King of France, and the Kiug of England. I am a king of kings. If I give an order to the princes of the empire, they obey if they please; if they do not please, they disobey. The King of France is a king of asses. He orders what he pleases, and they obey like asses. The King of England is king of a loyal nation. They obey him with heart and mind a faithful subjects. A secretary had embezzled gulden. Maximilian sent for him, and asked what should be done to a confidential servant who had robbed his master. The secretary recommended the gallows. Nay, nay, the Emperor said, and tapped him on the shoulder, I cannot spare you yet. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Description : Excerpt from The Contemporary Review, Vol. 46: July-December, 1884 Such was the Egyptian question at the beginning, and it has never lost the character it then acquired. Egyptwas conceived both by English and French statesmen to have an importance altogether distinct from commercial considerations. It was regarded as a possible base of operations for hostile enterprises in the East. The nation which managed to get possession of it would be half-way on the road to India. Transports or ships of war starting from the ports of the Red Sea would be able to reach Bombay before the fleet sent to encounter them had doubled the Cape Circumstances have so changed that these ideas seem ridiculous, but it should be remembered that France once fought with na in India on equal terms, and that at one time it seemed doubtful on which side the balance would incline. When Napoleon landed 1n Egypt, only a tew years had passed since the appearance of a French emissary in India had given the signal for a war which raged from Bohilcund to the Carnatic. The intelligence that war was declared between France and England, on the strength of which Warren Hating! Determined to forestall his adversary, reached him from the British Consul at Cairo. The importance of Egypt as afl'ording a means of quicker communication with India first dawned upon na with the establishment of the overland route. The construction of a railway to Suez, and the project of cutting a canal through the isthmus, brought commercial interests still more prominently into the foreground. There need have been no international rivalry 111 the canal; but the rivalry already existed, and was at once associated with the new enterprise. Thenceforth the political question and the commercial question became one, and a higher premium than M was put upon the acquisition of a preponderating influence in Egypt.

Description : Excerpt from The Contemporary Review, Vol. 5: May-August, 1867 For it is nothing less than this that Dionysius claims to give. His books taken together are a Philosophy of Being. He starts from the Absolute, and passing through the successions of its descending manifestations rises to the Absolute in the ecstasy of a mystic union of man with God. The grandeur of the problem gives a solemn dignity to the earnest effort to solve it; and popular specula tions of our own time give even a present interest to the first Christian solution, however imperfect it may be, of what remains the last human mystery.
