Excerpt from Essays: Theological and Literary
These essays are published in response to the desire expressed by a number of Dr. Everett's pupils and friends that his shorter papers might be collected and made generally accessible. It is to be regretted that they must be sent forth without having had the benefit of his final revision. But they were all written during the last fifteen years of his life, and may be regarded as expressing his mature thought. He might have retouched them here and there, expanding, abridging, or refining - it is not likely that he would have modified their positions in any important respect.
Most of the essays have already appeared in print, and are reproduced by the kind permission of the editors of two magazines. Eight appeared in the New World, vols. i.-ix., 1892-1900, and one, "The Poems of Emerson," in the Andover Review, vol. vii., 1887. Of the remaining papers, that on "The Philosophy of Browning" was read before the Boston Browning Club about ten years ago, and those on "Instinct and Reason" and "The Faust of Goethe" have not before been made public.
