Excerpt from Memories of a Hostess: A Chronicle of Eminent Friendships Drawn Chiefly From the Diaries of Mrs. James T. Fields IN the years immediately before the death Of Mrs. James T. Fields, on January 5, 1915, she spoke to me more than once Of her intention to place in my posses sion a cabinet Of Old papers - journals Of her own, let ters from a host Of correspondents, Odds and ends Of manuscript and print which stood in a dark corner Of a small reception-room near the front door Of her house in Charles Street, Boston. On her death this intention was found to have been confirmed in writing. It was also made clear that Mrs. Fields had no desire that her own life should be made a subject of record unless, she wrote, for some reason not altogether connected with myself. Such a reason is abundantly suggested in her records of the friends she was con stantly seeing through the years covered by thejournals. These friends were men and women whose books have made them the friends Of the English-speaking world, and a better knowledge Of them wouldjustify any ampli fication Of the records Of their lives. In this process the figure Of their friend and hostess in Charles Street must inevitably reveal itself not as the subject Of a biog raphy, but as a central animating presence, a focus Of sympathy and understanding, which seemed to make a single phenomenon out Of a long series and wide vari ety Of friendships and hospitalities. The blue books more than fifty in number which Mrs. Fields used for the journals have already yielded many pages Of valuable record to her own books, especially James T. Fields: Biographical Notes and Personal Sketches and Authors and Friends also even, here and there, to Mr. Fields's Yesterdays with Authors Yet she left unprinted much that is both picturesque and illumi nating: so many of the persons mentioned in the jour nal were still living or had but recently died when her books were written. There are, besides, many passages used in a fragmentary way, which may now with pro priety be given complete.

In a critical examination of Thackeray's style, Mr. Loofbourow shows how Thackeray "hybridized" the genre of the romance by adapting the tone and language of the epic, the chivalric romance, and the pastoral, and by carrying parody and satire to a high technical level. Thackeray used these techniques with particular success in Vanity Fair and Henry Esmond. Besides analyzing these two works, Mr. Loofbourow discusses the significance of epic in the 19th century, the expressive values of the novel as a whole, and the relevance of Thackeray’s methods to the work of such writers as George Eliot, Henry James, Virginia Woolf, and E. M. Forster. His book is an attempt to come to terms with Thackeray’s style, and a work conceivably destined to become a landmark among the very few acceptable studies of English fiction. It should prove indispensable to anyone interested in style in fiction, and should at the same time precipitate a new trend in Thackeray scholarship. Originally published in 1964. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
