    I bought a copy of this in Athens in 1978 when I was there teaching Englishto the Greeks So this rereading is a type of Olde Lang Syne trip down Memory Lane With Greek resonances Now I notice that the majority of people on this site are from India,which is GREAT What a GREAT way to study style and English usage and improve, borrow, experiment or just hope it will rub off as it so often does.Nothing like some gentle plagarism to expand one s own repertoire.Other readers are from Pakistan, Bangladesh, the UK, Sydney Australia, like me , the USA, Israel, the Czech Republic,I ll have to recheck to see I didn t omit anyone.There are 64 essays herein my 1951 version There is a 1987 version with a handsome reproduction of a full length portrait of Bacon on the Penguin Book cover, but I don t know if W.E.Williams added any essayists It begins with Francis Bacon 1561 1626 whose succinct pieces are like brief hammer blowsI think he is regarded as the Papa of the Essay Form and finishes with V.S.Pritchett 1900 So there is only one person born on the fringe of the 20th centurywhich means reading another book of essays doesn t it.And that will just mean luxurious variety
