Excerpt from The Life and Times of Alfred the Great: Drawn Up From the Most Authentic Ancient Chroniclers, and Including Important Facts Now First Published
To write the life of a King who was born a thousand years ago, but whose name is as fresh in the mouths of Englishmen as if he had lived in our own times, is an undertaking which, at first sight, may appear perilous to the writer, and more likely to obscure than to illustrate the splendid achieve ments of his hero. It has been, perhaps, from a feeling of this sort that, if we except one or two short and hasty sketches, no one for more than two hundred years has ventured to delineate, in a full and elaborate work, the life and actions of our favourite King, Alfred the Great.
