    Excerpt from Studies in the Evolution of English Criticism: A Thesis Presented to the Philosophical Faculty of Yale University in Candidacy for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy

    But universal and many-sided as was this critical interest during the years following the Restoration, it was through John Dryden, poet, dramatist, and man of letters, that the Spirit newly pervading literature found truest interpretation. Allied in imagination to the generation that had just passed away, in reason to the stricter sect of the new scientists, he brought into criticism at once the definiteness of a treatment thoroughly scientific and something of his own breadth of sympathy.\ The immediate questions with which he dealt were of transient interest; the juster appreciation of the past, which marks our century, has destroyed his claim to be called the father of English criti cism. 1 But his critical writings formed a turning point in our literary history. The criticism of his predecessors, however shrewd or wise, was but the superficial system of a half-right analyst or the detached utterance of a poet or literary artist. From these elements of a system Dryden elabor ated a reasonable and scientific English criticism; and though he left it still poor in knowledge and narrow in s00pe, it had, from his first word, come to a full understanding of itself and its philosophy.
