‘[Books published this day]’. 1v post 8vo. 9s. 6d.
Notes: ‘Is this her fault or mine? / The tempter or the tempted, who sins most?’ Shakespeare ‘The difficult and delicate subject which forms the ground-work of the novel of ‘Falkland’ has been unhesitatingly taken by French, German, and Italian authors; but has not, till now, been approached by any English writer. Rousseau has invested the attachment of St. Preux for Madame de Wolmer, with all the charms of the most seductive eloquence, but even he has not ventured to excite our sympathies in favour of female frailty; nor has Goethe in his bold imitation of the ‘Apostle of Affliction’ dated to go further than the author of the Nouvelle Heloise. Ugo Foscolo, again, is eloquent, but not passionate. It was reserved for an English writer to complete the series of these novels of love, and Falkland will be found to consummate the idea which the Authors of ‘La Nouvelle Heloise’ ‘Werter’ and ‘Jacoppo Ortis’ had only begun’.
