Excerpt from Jane Eyre: An Autobiography Reader, because I think I see in him an intellect profounder and more unique than his contemporaries have yet recognised because I regard him as the first social regenerator of the day as the very master of that working corps who would restore to rectitude the warped system of things; because I think no emnmentator on his writings has yet found the comparison that suits him, the terms which rightly characterise his talent. They say he is like Fielding: they talk of his wit, humour, comic powers. He resembles Fielding as an eagle does a vulture Fielding could stoop on carrion, but Thackeray never does. His wit is bright, his humour attractive, but both bear the same relation to his serious genius that the mere lambent sheet-lightning playing under the edge of the summer-cloud does to the electric death-spark hid in its womb. Finally, I have alluded to Mr. Thackeray, because to him - if he will accept the tribute of a total stranger - I have dedicated this second edition of jane Evan.
