Lavengro, Vol. 1 of 3: The Scholar, the Gypsy, the Priest (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Lavengro, Vol. 1 of 3: The Scholar, the Gypsy, the PriestThe time embraces nearly the first quarter of the present century: this information again may, per haps, be anything but agreeable to thee; it is a long time to revert to, but fret not thyself, many matters which at present much occupy the public mind originated in some degree towards the latter end of that period, and some of them will be treated of.The principal actors in this dream, or drama, alatter end of that period, and some of them will be treated of.The principal actors in this dream, or drama, are, as you will have gathered from the title page, a Scholar, a Gypsy, and a Priest. Should you ima gine that these three form one, permit me to assure you that you are very much mistaken. Should there be something of the Gypsy manifest in the Scholar, there is certainly nothing of the Priest. With respect-to the Gypsy decidedly the most entertaining character of the three - there is certainly nothing of the Scholar or the Priest in him; and as for the Priest, though there may be something in him both of scholarship and gypsy ism, neither the Scholar nor the Gypsy would feel at all flattered by being confounded with him.'About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
