Excerpt from Extracts From Young's Night Thoughts, With Observations Upon Them
The great value of the Night Thoughts, and the in estimable value of the. Subject, certainly deserved a more able selector and commentator than I have proved myself to be. However, as no attempt of the kind, that I know of, has ever been made, I venture mine into the world, in hopes that it may induce more to read the poem itself, among those who most want its admonitions, or those who have been deterred from it by a' mistaken, as to many parts of it at least, notion of its gloom and severity. If they dislike seriousness, even upon the most important subjects, their case is at least as desperate as Lorenzo's they will, it is to be feared, have nothing but a dreadful scene before them, in the unconsidered One, in the worlds unknown, into Which they must at some time be wafted. If they do not give their consciences leave to speak now, they will speak, their leave unasked, when it is too late for them to be heard with any profit.
