The Works of the Right Honourable Edmund Burke, Vol. 4 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Works of the Right Honourable Edmund Burke, Vol. 4The present volume contains publications of Burke relating entirely to the Revolution in France. Glad stone thought Burke was a tripartite man; America, France, Ireland right as to two, wrong in one.' We have now to consider Burke in regard to that one great cause to which he gave himself where the verdict of history has been declared against him. And yet, again it must be pointed out that his cardinal error detracts in no way from the value of these pieces. Though the special issue is misleading, as Mr. Morley says of the Re?ections, It lives because it contains a sentiment, a method, a set of informal principles, which, awakened into new life after the Revolution, rapidly transformed the current ways of thinking and feeling about all the most serious objects of our atten tion, and have powerfully helped to give a richer substance to all modern literature and again, he says, the book is like some temple by whose structure and design we allow ourselves to be impressed, without being careful to measure the precise truth or fitness of the worship to which it was consecrated by its first founders.' In all Burke's works, but in regard especially to his Writings on French Affairs, readers are constantly forced to feel with Hazlitt that, if in arriving at one error he discovered a hundred truths, they would con sider themselves a hundred times more indebted to him than if in stumbling upon what they considered as the right side of the question he had committed a hundred absurdities in striving to establish his point. In the hundred truths delivered by the way will be found the chief glory of these pieces to the present generation.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
