Excerpt: Chapter One. WHEN old Mr Gilfil died, thirty years ago, there was general sorrow in Shepperton; and if black cloth had not been hung round the pulpit and reading?desk, by order of his nephew and principal legatee, the parishioners would certainly have subscribed the necessary sum out of their own pockets, rather than allow such a tribute of respect to be wanting. All the farmers? wives brought out their black bombasines; and Mrs Jennings, at the Wharf, by appearing the first Sunday after Mr Gilfil?s death in her salmon?coloured ribbons and green shawl, excited the severest remark. To be sure, Mrs Jennings was a new?comer, and town?bred, so that she could hardly be expected to have very clear notions of what was proper; but, as Mrs Higgins observed in an undertone to Mrs Parrot when they were coming out of church, ?Her husband, who?d been born i? the parish, might ha? told her better.? An unreadiness to put on black on all available occasions, or too great an alacrity in putting it off, argued, in Mrs Higgins?s opinion, a dangerous levity of character, and an unnatural insensibility to the essential fitness of things....

Introduction: FIVE?AND?THIRTY years ago the glory had not yet departed from the old coach?roads; the great roadside inns were still brilliant with well?polished tankards, the smiling glances of pretty barmaids, and the repartees of jocose ostlers; the mail still announced itself by the merry notes of the horn; the hedge?cutter or the rick?thatcher might still know the exact hour by the unfailing yet otherwise meteoric apparition of the peagreen Tally?ho or the yellow Independent; and elderly gentlemen in pony?chaises, quartering nervously to make way for the rolling swinging swiftness, had not ceased to remark that times were finely changed since they used to see the pack?horses and hear the tinkling of their bells on their very highway....

Excerpt: Men can do nothing without the make?believe of a beginning. Even Science, the strict measurer, is obliged to start with a make?believe unit, and must fix on a point in the stars? unceasing journey when his sidereal clock shall pretend that time is at Nought. His less accurate grandmother Poetry has always been understood to start in the middle; but on reflection it appears that her proceeding is not very different from his; since Science, too, reckons backwards as well as forwards, divides his unit into billions, and with his clock?finger at Nought really sets off in medias res. No retrospect will take us to the true beginning; and whether our prologue be in heaven or on earth, it is but a fraction of that all?presupposing fact with which our story sets out....

Excerpt: Chapter 1. Outside Dorlcote Mill A WIDE plain, where the broadening Floss hurries on between its green banks to the sea, and the loving tide, rushing to meet it, checks its passage with an impetuous embrace. On this mighty tide the black ships?laden with the fresh?scented fir?planks, with rounded sacks of oil?bearing seed, or with the dark glitter of coal?are borne along to the town of St Ogg?s, which shows its aged, fluted red roofs and the broad gables of its wharves between the low wooded hill and the river brink, tinging the water with a soft purple hue under the transient glance of this February sun. Far away on each hand stretch the rich pastures and the patches of dark earth, made ready for the seed of broad?leaved green crops, or touched already with the tint of the tender?bladed autumn?sown corn....

Excerpt: Proem. More than three centuries and a half ago, in the mid spring?time of 1492, we are sure that the angel of the dawn, as he travelled with broad slow wing from the Levant to the Pillars of Hercules, and from the summits of the Caucasus across all the snowy Alpine ridges to the dark nakedness of the Western isles, saw nearly the same outline of firm land and unstable sea saw the same great mountain shadows on the same valleys as he has seen to?day saw olive mounts, and pine forests, and the broad plains green with young corn or rain?freshened grass saw the domes and spires of cities rising by the river?sides or mingled with the sedge?like masts on the many?curved sea?coast, in the same spots where they rise to?day. And as the faint light of his course pierced into the dwellings of men, it fell, as now, on the rosy warmth of nestling children; on the haggard waking of sorrow and sickness; on the hasty uprising of the hard?handed labourer; and on the late sleep of the night?student, who had been questioning the stars or the sages, or his own soul, for that hidden knowledge which would break through the barrier of man?s brie...

Excerpt: PRELUDE Who that cares much to know the history of man, and how the mysterious mixture behaves under the varying experiments of Time, has not dwelt, at least briefly, on the life of Saint Theresa, has not smiled with some gentleness at the thought of the little girl walking forth one morning hand?in?hand with her still smaller brother, to go and seek martyrdom in the country of the Moors? Out they toddled from rugged Avila, wide?eyed and helpless?looking as two fawns, but with human hearts, already beating to a national idea; until domestic reality met them in the shape of uncles, and turned them back from their great resolve. That child?pilgrimage was a fit beginning. Theresa?s passionate, ideal nature demanded an epic life: what were many?volumed romances of chivalry and the social conquests of a brilliant girl to her? Her flame quickly burned up that light fuel; and, fed from within, soared after some illimitable satisfaction, some object which would never justify weariness, which would reconcile self?despair with the rapturous consciousness of life beyond self. She found her epos in the reform of a religious order....

Excerpt: Chapter One. Among the many fatalities attending the bloom of young desire, that of blindly taking to the confectionery line has not, perhaps, been sufficiently considered. How is the son of a British yeoman, who has been fed principally on salt pork and yeast dumplings, to know that there is satiety for the human stomach even in a paradise of glass jars full of sugared almonds and pink lozenges, and that the tedium of life can reach a pitch where plum?buns at discretion cease to offer the slightest excitement? Or how, at the tender age when a confectioner seems to him a very prince whom all the world must envy ? who breakfasts on macaroons, dines on meringues, sups on twelfth?cake, and fills up the intermediate hours with sugar?candy or peppermint ? how is he to foresee the day of sad wisdom, when he will discern that the confectioner?s calling is not socially influential, or favourable to a soaring ambition? I have known a man who turned out to have a metaphysical genius, incautiously, in the period of youthful buoyancy, commence his career as a dancing? master; and you may imagine the use that was made of this initial mi...

Excerpt: In the days when the spinning?wheels hummed busily in the farmhouses ? and even great ladies, clothed in silk and thread?lace, had their toy spinning?wheels of polished oak ? there might be seen in districts far away among the lanes, or deep in the bosom of the hills, certain pallid undersized men, who, by the side of the brawny country?folk, looked like the remnants of a disinherited race. The shepherd?s dog barked fiercely when one of these alien?looking men appeared on the upland, dark against the early winter sunset; for what dog likes a figure bent under a heavy bag? ? and these pale men rarely stirred abroad without that mysterious burden. The shepherd himself, though he had good reason to believe that the bag held nothing but flaxen thread, or else the long rolls of strong linen spun from that thread, was not quite sure that this trade of weaving, indispensable though it was, could be carried on entirely without the help of the Evil One....

Excerpt: Chapter 1. Shepperton Church was a very different?looking building five?and?twenty years ago. To be sure, its substantial stone tower looks at you through its intelligent eye, the clock, with the friendly expression of former days; but in everything else what changes! Now there is a wide span of slated roof flanking the old steeple; the windows are tall and symmetrical; the outer doors are resplendent with oak?graining, the inner doors reverentially noiseless with a garment of red baize; and the walls, you are convinced, no lichen will ever again effect a settlement on they are smooth and innutrient as the summit of the Rev. Amos Barton?s head, after ten years of baldness and supererogatory soap. Pass through the baize doors and you will see the nave filled with well?shaped benches, understood to be free seats; while in certain eligible corners, less directly under the fire of the clergyman?s eye, there are pews reserved for the Shepperton gentility. Ample galleries are supported on iron pillars, and in one of them stands the crowning glory, the very clasp or aigrette of Shepperton church?adornment namely, an organ, not ver...

Excerpt: Chapter One. The time of my end approaches. I have lately been subject to attacks of angina pectoris; and in the ordinary course of things, my physician tells me, I may fairly hope that my life will not be protracted many months. Unless, then, I am cursed with an exceptional physical constitution, as I am cursed with an exceptional mental character, I shall not much longer groan under the wearisome burthen of this earthly existence. If it were to be otherwise ? if I were to live on to the age most men desire and provide for ? I should for once have known whether the miseries of delusive expectation can outweigh the miseries of true provision. For I foresee when I shall die, and everything that will happen in my last moments....

Excerpt: I. LOOKING INWARD. It is my habit to give an account to myself of the characters I meet with: can I give any true account of my own? I am a bachelor, without domestic distractions of any sort, and have all my life been an attentive companion to myself, flattering my nature agreeably on plausible occasions, reviling it rather bitterly when it mortified me, and in general remembering its doings and sufferings with a tenacity which is too apt to raise surprise if not disgust at the careless inaccuracy of my acquaintances, who impute to me opinions I never held, express their desire to convert me to my favourite ideas, forget whether I have ever been to the East, and are capable of being three several times astonished at my never having told them before of my accident in the Alps, causing me the nervous shock which has ever since notably diminished my digestive powers. Surely I ought to know myself better than these indifferent outsiders can know me; nay, better even than my intimate friends, to whom I have never breathed those items of my inward experience which have chiefly shaped my life....

Excerpt: Chapter One. ?No!? said lawyer Dempster, in a loud, rasping, oratorical tone, struggling against chronic huskiness, ?as long as my Maker grants me power of voice and power of intellect, I will take every legal means to resist the introduction of demoralizing, methodistical doctrine into this parish; I will not supinely suffer an insult to be inflicted on our venerable pastor, who has given us sound instruction for half a century.? It was very warm everywhere that evening, but especially in the bar of the Red Lion at Milby, where Mr Dempster was seated mixing his third glass of brandy?and?water. He was a tall and rather massive man, and the front half of his large surface was so well dredged? with snuff, that the cat, having inadvertently come near him, had been seized with a severe fit of sneezing an accident which, being cruelly misunderstood, had caused her to be driven contumeliously from the bar. Mr Dempster habitually held his chin tucked in, and his head hanging forward, weighed down, perhaps, by a preponderant occiput and a bulging forehead, between which his closely?clipped coronal surface lay like a flat and new?mo...
