American Romanticism would probably be the best way to attempt to describe this short volume of essays.
There are words, in and of themselves, that set a book apart. For me. One of those words is fardel, an archaic noun that simply means a bundle. I don't recall in what context I first encountered the word—Shakespeare, most probably, Hamlet, most likely—but whenever I re-encounter it, I know I am in the sphere of a Writer.

“I use no figure of speech when I say that we may now buy our books in bulk. I saw, only this morning, the advertisement of a large dry goods “emporium” (’tis laces and literature now) wherein is announced for sale the bound volumes of a popular magazine. “Over eight pounds of the choicest reading, bound in the usual style—olive green.” 0 likes
“There is a fearful moment of reckoning before us should it ever chance that when all our trees shall have been sacrificed on the altar of the patron-fiend of news, the newspaper supply shall suddenly be cut off and we find ourselves some fine morning minus our tidbits of shame and failure and disaster, left to the companionship of our own thoughts. Dante never imagined a terror like this.” 0 likes
