CHAPTER X
EIGHTEENTH CENTURY - LITERATURE UNDER THE GEORGES

prominent figures of the House in the stormy days preceding the American Revolution. Then it was that he made his famous Speech on Conciliation with, America. On the part of the government he was the most prominent prosecutor of Warren Hastings for abuse of power in India. The Reign of Terror in France called forth his Reflections on the French Revolution.
Burke was not merely a politician ; he was a thinker and orator and poet who devoted himself to politics. The thought is always first with him, but in the expression of the thought he is generous in his use of poetical adornment ; and yet his adornment is vastly more than a mere decoration. In his Conciliation, for instance, no statistics would have given his audience nearly so good an idea of the energy and enterprise of the colonists as his picturesque description of the manner in which they had carried on the whale fishery :

Whilst we follow them among the tumbling mountains of ice, and behold them penetrating into the deepest frozen recesses of Hudson's Bay and Davis's Straits, whilst we are looking for them beneath the Arctic Circle, we hear that they have pierced into the opposite region of polar cold, that they are at the antipodes, and engaged under the frozen Serpent of the north.

William Robertson, 1721-1793. The historians of the eighteenth century are represented by William Robertson, David Hume, and Edward Gibbon. Robertson was a Scotch clergyman who wrote of three different countries, A History of Scotland during the Reigns of Queen Mary and james the Sixth, in 1759 ; then The History of Charles V of Germany; and finally, A History of America.
