Description
Excerpt: ON ENGLISH COMPOSITION AND OTHER MATTERS This essay is believed to be the first composition by Samuel Butler that appeared in print. It was published in the first number of the EAGLE, a magazine written and edited by members of St. John?s College, Cambridge, in the Lent Term, 1858, when Butler was in his fourth and last year of residence. [From the Eagle, Vol. 1, No. 1, Lent Term, 1858, p. 41.] I sit down scarcely knowing how to grasp my own meaning, and give it a tangible shape in words; and yet it is concerning this very expression of our thoughts in words that I wish to speak. As I muse things fall more into their proper places, and, little fit for the task as my confession pronounces me to be, I will try to make clear that which is in my mind.
