CHAPTER VIII
PURITANS AND CAVALIERS II

universally recognized, and the very folly and selfcomplacency of the diarist give its reality something of the amusing charm which delights in such fictitious characters as Shakespeare's Justice Shallow."
Pepys died at Clapham in 1703 in poor circumstances ; he had given up his diary many years before on account of his failing eyesight, but for long after he retired from the Admiralty he was consulted on matters connected with the Navy, and was held in great respect by all who knew him : Evelyn outlived him by three years, and died at Wotton where his tombstone records that he had learnt from the age of extraordinary events and revolutions in which he had lived that " all is vanity which is not honest, and that there is no solid wisdom but in real piety."
The year 1700 is marked by the death of Dryden, the critic, dramatist, and satirist. The seventeenth century had seen the noblest imaginative work of Shakespeare ; the thoughtfulness for form of Ben Jonson ; the accurate reasoning of Bacon ; the gay trivialities, sometimes touched with seriousness, of the Cavalier poets ; the tender grace of Walton ; the earnestness, aspiration, and devotion of the writers of religious prose and poetry ; the majesty of Paradise Lost ; the spiritual symbolism of The Pilgrim's Proa-ress ; the perfection of memoir writing, and now, last of all, had come John Dryden, who stood in the story of the century for the development of critical judgment. The glow of the Elizabethan inspiration had long since passed away. Looking forward to the eighteenth century, one could not hope to find a great imaginative poetry or a marked originality, but one could justly expect an unusual development of literary moderation and correctness.
