CHAPTER XII
THE VICTORIAN ERA

as he could himself, and thinking thus he would pile one metaphor on to another until the reader quite excusably finds it hard to follow him. But one can rest assured that when one has read and re-read a difficult passage of Meredith's until its meaning has become plain one has found something well worth the trouble of searching for, and which one will never forget.
Meredith's chief works are The Ordeal of Richard Feverel (1859), The Egoist (1879), Evan Harrington (1861), Beauchamp's Career (1876), and Diana of the Crossways (1885).
In his later novels his style became more and more involved and obscure, but these five rank among the very greatest in the whole of English literature. In all of them Meredith's humour, pathos, and love of nature, are very strong, but with regard to his humour one must remember what he himself said in his Essay on Comedy (1897)
-" The test of true comedy is that it shall awaken thoughtful laughter." His humour, unlike Dickens's is never used for its own sake, and with it he pours an often scornful light on the absurdities and excesses of mankind.
Thomas Babington Macaulay, 1800-1859. The most prominent essayists between 1832 and 1900 were Macaulay, Carlyle, Ruskin, and Arnold.
Thomas Babington Macaulay must have been as interesting when a small boy as he was when a man.
