Hazlitt as a legendary criticizer


M Priyanga, K Dhanashree

Hazlitt is an important descriptive critic of the Romantic Age. His criticism is just and judicious; his aim is nothing beyond analysis and judgment. Hazlitt defined his task as “to feel what is good, and give reasons for the faith that is in me”. So far as the volume of critical writing is concerned, he is undoubtedly the most eminent critic of his time. What distinguishes him from his contemporary critics is the fact that in spite of enunciating and explaining important aspects of the principles and theories, his main concern was to become a practical critic and to offer his judgment on the writers and dramatists he had read. Hazlitt was a Romantic but free from the vagaries and extravagances of Romanticism.
