Excerpt from Edmund Burke's Letter to a Noble Lord, Edited With Introduction and Notes

The "Letter to a Noble Lord" is the best possible introduction to the study of Burke. It has brevity, force, and variety, and there is not a dull page in it. It may be made the subject of historical, biographical, and literary study. It is a clear and calm review of the great political measures of Burke's public career; it is a proud and sufficient apologia; and it is a masterpiece of golden eloquence. Alike in argument and irony, Burke rises in this instance to the height of his skill and fame. He speaks poniards, and every word stabs. Nor are the faults of his later manner so painfully apparent here as in the "Reflections on the French Revolution," which preceded the "Letter," and in the "Regicide Peace," which followed it.

The student of style should be taught to compare Burke's architecture of sentence and paragraph with the robust prose of Dryden and the pretentious manner of Bolingbroke. And he may institute a profitable comparison between this "Letter" and Wordsworth's superb pamphlet upon "The Convention of Cintra" - one of the crowning glories of English prose literature - and Cardinal Newman's "Apologia pro vita sua", both of which derive from Burke their inspiration and their splendor.

It will be seen that Burke always rests his case upon history. Tradition and expediency are the lamps by which his feet are guided.
