5-0 out of 5 stars Gusto In All Things
The essays of William Hazlitt reveal a personality that ranges from a spectrum of an undiluted general antagonism, to one that shares an affinity with nature and art, and to one that insists on the right to be alone.He writes as if his life were discrete chapters with each one emerging as a finely crafted essay.It would be too easy to conclude that his life was absolutely typical of any one essay as one might be tempted to based on, for example, "On the Pleasure of Hating" that his entire existence was given over to misogyny.Rather, the corpus of his essays depicts a man, often in torment, who chose to reveal his feelings of the moment.Whatever demons may have been driving him to write, one quality of character is eternally present--a passion for expression that rings true regardless of the essay topic.

Hazlitt was a man who was reviled by many and he in turn was not bashful about returning the sentiment.As a young man, he was attracted by the promise of liberty of the French Revolution.He was dismayed and disgusted by the turn it took toward bloody excess.Nevertheless, he continued to nostalgically peer backward even as he looked ahead to future and ongoing disappointment.When he first met Wordsworth and Coleridge, he idolized both as lions of liberty.Eventually, they drifted toward conservatism, leaving him fuming at what he saw as no less than rank betrayal.In "My First Acquaintance with Poets," he takes the uncomfortable position of praising them from the vantage of their decade's long drift from liberalism all the while seeming to praise them as elite members of the Romantic pantheon.This essay is one of the very few in which Hazlitt is circumspect in his true feelings. In the majority of his other essays, Hazlitt has no problem venting his spleen on a world that gladly returned that spleen.For those readers who seek to know the source of Hazlitt's general bitterness toward mankind, they need look no further than "On the Pleasure of Hating."Here, he sees hating others as a God-given right, one that is essentially therapeutic in nature.The list of reasons for this hatred is legion, but a common thread was his revulsion toward the inanities of life.He railed against foolish chatter, worn out clich├ęs, and worn out comrades.In "On Going a Journey," Hazlitt shrinks his general hatred of people to those who insist on accompanying him on walks about the country side.The more a chatterbox a traveling companion was, the more Hazlitt felt a deep revulsion toward that one who stood as a barrier between Hazlitt and a healing nature that demanded to be admired in solitude.

When Hazlitt was not reviling others, he could pass comment on what he saw as glaring deficiencies in those others.He chastises the young in "On the Feelings of Immortality in Youth" for their unwarranted optimism that the glory days of their youth shall continue indefinitely.One can sense the scorn he heaps on the young as those who recognize intellectually that time really is the great leveler but they refuse on a visceral level to accept the same rationale.

Hazlitt's penchant for passion is no more evident than in "On Gusto."For Hazlitt, life had little meaning if passion were absent.He discourses on painters, authors, and sculptors who could reach out to grab their audience to make them feel the passion of the moment.In his own writings, Hazlitt could do no less.Whatever the topic happened to be Hazlitt insisted on communicating in a style that combined his own personal sense of gusto with an infallible command of the English language.Words were near holy things to him.There were words which were close to his feeling and those which exactly captured the moment of that feeling.In "On Familiar Style," Hazlitt takes to task an entire generation of writers who insisted on writing at a level that he saw as overly vulgar or florid.Any writer who chose to call himself by that name had an obligation to write on the very highest of levels.Such a writer had to be full of gusto, had to possess the means to express himself clearly and directly, and had the need to do so in peaceful solitude.That the number of writers who could do all three was generally limited to William Hazlitt goes a long way toward explaining why there was so much rancor directed at a man who felt it his bounden duty to reply in the same manner.We honor William Hazlitt today for the very qualities that caused that rancor in the first place.


5-0 out of 5 stars The spirit of the life
I would recomend this book because Hazlitt is a absolutely expert respect of the people mind and character. After you read to Shakespeare, you must read, by obligation, to William Hazlitt. The clean and wise life it's necesary for a deep spirit. My english seem the most horrible expresion. But the Hazlitt english is the most perfect english. I'm sorry. A good thinking life it's an whole avalaible life. Thank you ... Read more
