Excerpt from Historical Essays of Thomas Babington Macaulay Our difficulty has been a failure to appreciate Ma caulay's point of view. The essays were written in days of fierce political strife. The fires were at white heat, party advocates were not always scrupulous in nice points of honesty, and turbulent passion stood for cool principle. The essayist was likewise an orator, who in a twelvemonth made five great speeches in defence of the Reform Bill. He was a mighty power in political life, and he expressed his sympathy unequivocably. It is all above board and open as the day. Hume was subtle and sly; if he cannot convince, he is often willing to deceive. Macaulay, the avowed Whig and constant defender of his party's doctrine, marshals his proofs, which may be accepted as conclusive or rejected as insufficient. He is fair, but not critical; he is in the battle, not viewing the field years after the con ict. The essays are parti san, and give a Whig version of English history, naturally enough condemned by Tory sympathizers. He did not try to please them, and could not if he had. But his Whig version of our (english) his tory has been, on the whole, accepted by a wide public, with whom political partisanship is not a strong principle.
