Includes a discussion of Nathaniel Hawthorne, in relation to geologist and biologist Louis Agassiz (pp. 95-99). "These reflections had their origin in T. S. Eliot's paper 'What is a Classic?', which he delivered to the Virgil Society in 1944. Having thought a good deal about that paper, and about related essays, I was very glad to be able to oblige myself to explore more systematically the implications of Eliot's position, and to try to reconcile them with my own thoughts on the subject." - from the author's Preface.
