Taylor's written prose style is very peculiar, and not readily to be mistaken: one of his old friends remarks,
"It is easy to trace, or rather it is impossible to overlook, him. ... It is true that he does not speak [write] . . . any other language but the Taylorian; but I am so fond of his vigour and originality, that for his Bake I have studied and learned bis language. As the Hebrew is studied for one book, so is the Taylorian by me for one author."—Sia James Mackintosh : Lift, chaps, v. and Till.

Sir William Tkmplk As An Author.
"Of all the considerable writers nf this age, Sir William Temple Is almost the only one that kept himself altogether unpolluted by that inundation of rice and licentiousness which overwhelmed the nation. The style of this author, although extremely negligent, and even infected with foreign idioms, is agreeable aud interesting. That mixture of vanity which apls'ars in his works is rather a recommendation to them. By means of it we enter into acquaintance with the character of the author, full of honour and humanity, and fancy that we are engnged, not in the perustil of a liook, but in conversation with a companion."— Hume: Hist, of Etta., ch. lxxi.
"Sir William Temple was tile first writer who gave cadence to English prose. Before his time they were careless of arrangement, and did not mind whether a sentence ended with an important word or an insignificant word, or with what part of speech it was concluded."—Dr. Johnson, in Boswell, ch. Ixlii.
If the Doctor had said "one of the first," instead of "the first," he would have been correct.
"lie [Johnson] once told me [BoswellJ that he had formed his
style upon that of Sir William Temple, and upon [Ephralm] Chambers's Proposal for his Dictionary."—Bagwells Johnson,ch. ix. See, also, Malonc's note, ch. Ixiii.
''Next to Dryden, tho second place among the polite writers of the period from the Restoration to the end of the century has commonly been given to Sir William Temple. His Miscellanies, to which principally this praise belongs, are not recommended bv more erudition than a retired statesman might acquire with no great expense of time, nor by mnch originality of reflection. But, if Temple has not profound knowledge, bo turns all he possesses well to account; if his thoughts are not very striking, they are commonly just, lie has less eloquence than Bolingbruke, but is also free from his restlessness and ostentation. Much also which now appears superficial in Temple's historical surveyB was far less familiar in his age: be has the merit of a comprehensive and a candid niiud. His style, to which we should particularly refer, will be found in comparison with bis contemimraries highly polished, and sustained with more equability than they preserve, remote from any thing either pedantic or bumble. The periods are studiously rhythmical; yet they want the variety and peculiar charm that we admire in those of Dryden."—Hallam : Lit. Hist, of Europe, 4th ed., 1854, iii. 5E>8. "Swift represents him as having brought English style to perfection. Hume, I think, mentions him ; but of late he is not often spoken of as one of the reformers of our style: this, bowever, bo certainly was. The structure of his style is perfectly modern; and I have not marked above half a dozen words that are become obsolete. He has, indeed, several Gallicisms, but they are chiefly in letters written in Flanders and Holland, when he was every day speaking French."—Sir James MackinTosh: Life, ii. ch. iii.
"Milton's prose works are exceedingly stiff and pedantic, and Sir William's as remarkably easy and graceful; but he should have attended more to the minutias of names and dates."—Dr. Richard Farmer: Letter on the Study of English History.
"Temple is a very sensible writer, and draws more from his own stock of observation and reflection than is usual with the writers of the present day. . . . Temple, whatever topic he treats, always entertains : he has an easy regular stream of good sense, which never overflows, or fails, or stagnates."—Green's Diary of a low of Lit., 1810, 4to, 1, 31.
"All is easy and flowing in him; he is exceedingly harmonious; smoothness, and what maybe called amenity, are the distinguishing characters of bis manner, relaxing sometimes, as such a manner naturally will do, into a prolix and remiss style. No writer whatever has stamped upon his Btyle a more lively impression of his own character. ... He may be classed as standing in the middle between a negligent simplicity and the highest degree of ornament which this character of style admits."— Dr. Blair: Rliel. and Belles-Lett., Lect. XIX. See, also, Lect. X.
"Sir William Temple was the D'Ossat of England; but in the views and the style of his Observations, bis Miscellaneous Works, and bis Memoirs, he is far inferior to our diplomatist."—ChaTeaubriand: Sketches of Eng. Lit., ii. 195.
"He had gradually formed a style singularly lucid and melodious, superficially deformed, indeed, by Gallicisms ami Ilispanicisms, picked up in travel or in negotiation, but at the bottom pure English, which generally flowed along with careless simplicity, but occasionally rosoeven IntoCiceronian magnificence." —Lord Mvcaulat: Edin. Rev., Oct. 1838, 145: Life ami Writings nf Sir William Temple: repub. in his EsBnys.
"It is an ordinary criticism that my Lord Shaftesbury and Sir William Temple are models of the genteel style in writing. We should prefer saying—of the lordly and the gentlemanly. Nothing can be more unlike than the inflated finical rhapsodies of Shaftesbury and the plain natural chit-chat of Temple. Tho man of rank is discernible in both writers; but in the one it is only insinuated gracefully; in the other it slands out offensively. The peer seems to have written with his coronet on and his earl's mantle before him; the commoner, in his elbow-chair and undress. What can be more pleasant than the way in which the retired statesman peeps out in his essays, penned by the latter in his delightful retreat at Skene? They scent of Nimeguen and the Hague. Scarce an authority is quoted under an ambassador."—Charles Lamb: Tlie Genteel Style nf Writing: Lamb's Works.
Of Sir William's unfortunate Essay upon Ancient and Modern Learning, already noticed by us. (iskntlf.v, RicnARi). p. 170, ««»rn,) Lord Macaulay remarks that
"It now seems strange that even the eminent public services, the deserved popularity, and the graceful style of Temple should have saved so silly a performance from universal contempt. Of the books which he most vehemently eulogized, bis eulogies proved that he knew nothing. In fact, be could not read a line of the language in which they were written."—Life of Francis Atterbury, in Encyc. Brit., 8lh ed., iv., (1854:) republished in his Essays.
