Excerpt from The Provincial Letters of Pascal
It might seem presumptuous to put forth an edi tion of any writing of Pascal's at a time when the literary world is expecting the great work which is to crown M. F augere's career as the first, both in seniority and authority, Of ... critics upon Pascal. But the present writer is far from the rashness of entering into any competition with one whom all students of Pascal regard as their master. Questions of exclusively lite rary judgment are touched upon only so far as is indispensable for the aid of English readers. In those which concern theology, following the footsteps of Reuchlin, sainte-beuve, Beard, and Tulloch, and ao knowledging his great indebtedness to their researches, he has attempted, in the land of Milton and Jeremy Taylor, to facilitate still further the study of the masterpiece left by their contemporary and their equal.
