Overview

William Harrison Ainsworth's "Star-Chamber," is as full of "thrilling interest" and "startling events" as any other of his works. The only matter of surprise to us is, the marvelous power of reproduction with which this popular author is endowed. He seems literally to glean from English history coffers full of romantic matter, only requiring such a practiced pen as his to convert into novels of absorbing interest; and although we are now and then astonished at the coolness with which deeds of intolerable horror and crime are related, the dramatic cast of the plot is generally so complete, that we cannot be easily persuaded to let the book out of our hands before we have learned the results of so many cross-purposes and heart-breakings.
