Excerpt from The History of Fiction: Being a Critical Account of the Most Celebrated Prose Works of Fiction From the Earliest Greek Romances to the Novels of the Present Age

Tiie art of fictitious narrative appears to have Its origin in the same principles of selection by which the fine arts in general are created and perfected. Among the vast variety of trees and shrubs which are presented to his view, a savage finds, in his wanderings, some which peculiarly attract his notice by their beauty and fragrance, and these he at length selects, and plants them round his dwelling. In like manner, among the mixed events of human life, he experiences some which are peculiarly grateful, and of which the narra tive at once pleases himself, and excites in the minds of his hearers a kindred emotion. Of this kind are unlocked-for occurrences, successful enterprise, or great and unexpected deliverance from signal danger and distress. As he collected round his habitation those objects with which he had been pleased, in order that they might afford him a frequent gratification, so he rests his fancy on those incidents which had formerly awaked the most powerful emotions; and the remem brance of which most strongly excites his tenderness, or pride, or gratitude.
