Edinburgh free pdf Excerpt from Edinburgh: Under Sir Walter Scott In the end of the eighteenth century and the beginning of the nineteenth - from, approximately, the death of Samuel Johnson in 1784 to that of Walter Scott in 1832 - Edinburgh, rather than London, was the intellectual centre of the kingdom. It would, of course, be easy to show that London has never lacked illustrious men of letters among her citizens, and, in this very period, the names of Sheridan, Bentham, Blake, Lamb, and Keats at once occur to memory as evidence against our thesis. It must also be admitted that Edinburgh shares some of her great names with London, and that many of the writers of the time are associated with neither capital. The name of William Cowper recalls the village of Olney- the English Lakes claim their great poets- and Byron and Shelley call to mind Greece and Italy, as, in the earlier part of our period, Gibbon is identified with Lausanne. But the Edinburgh society which Scott remembered in his youth or met in his prime included a long series of remarkable men. Some of them, like Robertson the historian- Hugh Blair- John Home, the author of Dcmglas- Henry Mackenzie, The Man of Feeling- John Leyden- Dugald Stewart- and John Wilson, Christopher North, were more or less permanent residents. Others, like Adam Smith, Thomas Campbell, Lady Nairne, Thomas De Quincey, Sir James Mackintosh, and Sydney Smith, spent a smaller portion of their lives in Edinburgh.
