    1 thought on “Selections from The Tatler and The Spectator”

    1. I love to stand in front of and admire the Vanity Fair "Spy" prints at The Grand Hotel when I visit. I love the droll humor and suppose the packed frames on a green wall is a Carlton Varney. Somehow, I thought this compendium of writing from a century before that would strike me the same way. Maybe with illustrations, it would! Addison and Steele could easily have been the Colbert and Jon Stewart of their time, but I mostly found the musings of Isaac Bickerstaff, William Honeycomb, etc. to ring [...]

    2. I read some of these essays as part of an English Literature course in high school and remember them fondly. Sadly, one cannot go back 50 years and feel what one felt then. Reading them now, they seem quaintly irrelevant - silly almost. I suspect that the teacher, Brother Ignatius, with the big voice and a passion for the subject is what impressed me.

    3. "I desired only fornication" should be sufficient incitement to read this collection. Those bawdy, Enlightenment-era gents
