Excerpt from A Legend of Canterbury, or the People's Martyr
To delineate this wondrous character, from his gay youth to that supreme moment when he sprinkled with his life's blood the altar of St. Bennet, in the Church of England's Apos tle, is no easy task; but there is no f... ancy color ing in the portrait: imagination has only sum moued around him such dramatic characters and events as those among which he must in evitably have moved. The design of the writer has been to blend amusement with instruction, and, above all, to show how the mysterious working of Providende fails not to extract good from evil, and made the moment of Becket's death the triumph of his cause.
