Excerpt from Curiosities of Literature, Vol. 1 of 3
Among the literary novelties of our times, one not the least interesting has been those secret histories of their works which some of our great authors have prefixed to their late re - publications. Sir Walter Scott was induced to furnish those details of his long mysterious and unowned compositions to establish his appropriation of those popular writings. Others have followed his ex ample; and no one has more deeply interested us than our patriarch of literature, Mr. Godwin, whose secret history of his mode of composing his Caleb Williams is a remarkable instance of that intellectual narrative, which, perhaps, might be advantageously applied to every work whose character has been sanctioned by the only infallible critic - old and hoary Time!
