Hazlitt's Contrariness and Familiar Prose Style: Lessons on How to Be Critical
Halpin, David
London Review of Education, v9 n3 p293-303 2011
Contrariness of the kind manifest in the literary output and general disposition of the nineteenth century English essayist and journalist, William Hazlitt, has much to teach contemporary intellectuals working in the academy about how better to be critical, offering important lessons on the necessity for self-consistency and independence of thought and the need more to write for publication in a familiar and accessible conversational style.
