Excerpt from Lectures on the English Comic Writers
Tar: Lectures forming this volume were delivered at the Surrey Institution in 1818, and published immediately af rds. The present Edition, howet', contains some tions from other sources, collected by the author, ap parently with a view to a reprint of the volume, which additions are distinguished by brackets. Some of these are taken from an article contributed by the author to the Morning Chronicle in, I think, 1813, and the rest are critical prefaces, written by my father for Mr. Oxberry's Editions of the various Plays remarked upon. Having determined upon the speedy publication, in a collective form, of the whole of my father's writings on Art, and Artists, together with some pieces on these subjects not hitherto edited, I at first conceived it advisable to transfer the Lecture on Hogarth' to this latter work, where, pos sibly, in some points of view, it might appear better placed; but, on reﬂection, I have retained that Lecture in its ori ginnl position; for, after all, Hogarth was a comic writer, and one of our best; the only diﬂ'erence is, that he wrote.
