Excerpt from Selections From the Spectator: With an Introduction and Notes

Addison's life extends over a period of forty-seven 321 years only, from 1672 to 1719. At his birth, Charles Lu the Second was still on the throne; when he died, George the First had been reigning for five years. The interval had witnessed scenes as important as almost any in English history, and the change of thought, of social manners, of political and religious principles, was marked and permanent. With this change was a change in the tone of literature, to bring which about no one contri buted more largely than Addison, no one with a spirit so entirely healthy. From the point of view of practical action, Addison's life was uneventful. Though a poli tician, for many years a Member of Parliament, Under Secretary for Ireland, Chief Secretary for Ireland, and finally Secretary of State, he never distinguished himself as a brilliant administrator, while as a speaker he was a complete failure. The life he loved was that of a student, not so much of books as of mankind; and this life, embellished by literature and poetry, and aecom panied by the honour and respect of all whose honour and respect were worth having, he enjoyed almost.
