More  Hazlitt - 4

 

I wrote earlier on this place about Hazlitt and lately that I was adding his Political Essays - but had some considerable difficulties to cope with, that shouldn't be there: More Hazlitt - 3 + a note on Google.

Today I added the beginning of Hazlitt's An Essay on the Principles of Human Action but I have the same difficulties, albeit that while this "text" Google produces in this case is also useless without the pdf (that only has images of the pages), it is not as awfully garbled as in Google's te Political Essays.

Anyway - in case you like Hazlitt, you have something to look into.

I do hope to get it done and in html on my site, so that I can write my comments on these books, but that will need more time, more energy and more work, though Hazlitt is worth it.


P.S. Corrections, if any are necessary, have to be made later.

    "Ah me! alas, pain, pain ever, forever!

No change, no pause, no hope! Yet I endure.
I ask the Earth, have not the mountains felt?
I ask yon Heaven, the all-beholding Sun,
Has it not seen? The Sea, in storm or calm,
Heaven's ever-changing Shadow, spread below,
Have its deaf waves not heard my agony?
Ah me! alas, pain, pain ever, forever!
"
     - (Shelley, "Prometheus Unbound") 


    "It was from this time that I developed my way of judging the Chinese by dividing them into two kinds: one humane and one not. "
