Excerpt from Principles and Prospects of the Friends of Peace: A Discourse Pronounced Before the Hartford County Peace Society, December 25, 1833

So much for French philosophy. In regard to the lighter literature of France, it must be allowed that its aspect for three years past, has not been so pleasing. It has strongly reflected the political and social fermentation which has existed since the revolution of 1830. The English reader will obtain a view of its character from the Foreign Quarterly Beview, No. 18, and the Edinburgh Review, No. 116. He will perceive that notwithstanding the wild and morbid spirit, the cynicism, the scenes of blended horror, mirth and attrocity which appear in the dramatic and roo mantic writings of Janin, Balzac, Rabou, Charles, doc. Yet the lighter lit critturs of the present day, is by no means a professedly ifqidel literature like that of the 18th century. In regard to these strange and exaggerated creations, it is a singular and consoling feature, that at the bottom of them all, lies the admission of the necessity of a religion. In short, it is a period of ferment. It is transitional. The agitation will disappear. In the mean time, there are writers, such as Victor Hugo, and Lamartine, who pour forth their inspirations from a loftier and moresequutered seat. The latter is, by universal consent, admitted to be the Postof Frame; and his verses are imbued with a pervading spin rit of religion, with inmges and thoughts, rte-ascending to that heaven from which they had their birth.
