Abstract

THE “Life of Panizzi” by his friend and colleague, Mr. Louis Fagan,1 is marked by a tone of indiscriminate adulation which disfigures many specimens of modern biography. The hero is perfect, and they who think otherwise are dismissed with words of contempt, or are admonished to go and meditate on their wicked ways and then return in repentant mood to the community of hero-worshippers.
