Corrected Impressions (Barnes & Noble Digital Library): Essays on Victorian Writers by George Saintsbury


First published in 1895, Collected Impressions is Saintsbury’s lively and individual evaluation of the great Victorian writers from Thackeray through Ruskin. His study of Matthew Arnold is for many the definitive account of the figure who loomed largest in the minds of late Victorian literarati.  Saintsbury approached his survey with the premise that the “substance” of literature must “always be life,” without undue concern with beliefs, convictions as they are “mere garnishings.”

George Edward Bateman Saintsbury (1845–1933) was an influential English critic and a highly respected authority on English and French literature. Although his scholarly work was celebrated in his lifetime, today he’s best remembered for his classic Notes on a Cellar-Book (1920), a collection of tasting notes, menus, and a tribute to wine.
