WRITINGS OF ALFIERI, with his Portrait finely engraved by Cooper ; 4 vols. 12mo. 21s.
" ALFIERI is the great name of this age.”—Lord Byron. “ Such as these Dramas are,—holding so high a place in Italian Literature,
and in European reputation,—they well deserved to be translated; nor would it have been easy to find a more competent Translator than the Writer, who has with so much ability and acuteness characterized them.”
Quarterly Review. “ In his own way, ALFIERI, we think, is excellent. His fables are all ad
mirably contrived, and completely developed : his dialogue is copious and progressive: and his characters all deliver natural sentiments with great beauty, and often with great force of expression.”
i Edinburgh Review.
MEMOIRS OF THE LIFE AND WRITINGS OF
ISABEL; A TALE, By CHARLES LLOYD, 2 vols. 12mo. 10s. “It is evidently the work of a man of talents, full of enthusiasm, of strong
and uncontrouled powers, and is written from feeling and passion, rather than from the cold and calculating dictates of authorship. It is, therefore bold, and sometimes paradoxical, involving the best interests of the human heart in the inexplicable mazes of metaphysical sentiment, and exhibiting the martyrdom of overwrought virtue, dying the victim of passion, but triumphant over frailty and death."-Monthly Review, June 1820.
