THE

SPIRIT OF THE AGE.

LORD BYRON.

LORD BYRON and Sir Walter Scott are among writers now living* the two, who would carry away a majority of suffrages as the greatest geniuses of the age. The former would, perhaps, obtain the preference with the fine gentlemen and ladies (squeamishness apart)— the latter with the critics and the vulgar.

* This Essay was written just before Lord Byron's death.
