Excerpt from Literary Workers: Or Pilgrims to the Temple of Honour Little apology, it is hoped, is needed for a work of this description. The subject will ever be fresh and fascinating. If there is something to interest us in the story of the humblest of our fellow-creatures, how much more in the lives of the most highly gifted? There are various productions bearing more or less, upon the same topic, and notably amongst these stands the elder Disraeli's sketch of the Literary Character, to which the writer is largely indebted. It is not in any spirit of rivalry that he adds another to the list; but in the belief that the intrinsic charm of the theme will float this and many other volumes of the kind. The book is intended more especially for literary aspirants, and its purpose will be answered if it affords any genial stimulus to readers who may wish to rank amongst the toilers with the Pen. The author has endeavoured to invest literary genius with something of a personal character by tracing its story (cursorily, of course) in the form of a biography from the cradle to the grave.
