Art. I. Memoirs of the Life and Writings of George Buchanan. By · David Irving, A. M. 8vo. pp. xxx. 318. Price 8s. Edinburgh, Bell
and Co. ; Longman and Co. 1807. THE celebrity of Buchanan among the admirers, and cul
tivators of Latin poetry, sufficiently warrants the expectation, that an account of his life will be received with no common interest. He was one of those men whose memories aré cherished with a degree of fondness and admiration, that gives an air of importance to the minutest and most ordinary circumstances of their history. He outstripped his contemporaries in the favourite studies of the period in which he lived. When a knowledge of Roman literature was sought with the most persevering industry, and employed the brightest talents of the age, and when a happy imitation of the ancient compositions was deemed equal to original excellence, Buchanan was unanimously allowed, both in Latin poetry and prose, to bear away the palm of superiority. But the history of this celebrated man would be gratifying to public curiosity, even without the aid of literary fame to dignify its object. His life was a chequered and changeful scene. He passed through a variety of situations, resided in different countries, was exposed to many dangers, struggled with formidable difficulties, associated with every rank of men, and, ex- . cepting a short. occasional interval, he still proceeded onward to a higher point of eminence in the scale of society,
until we have the pleasing spectacle of a character origi... nally indigent and obscure, forcing his way, by dint of genius
and learning, to some of the highest honours and preferments which his country could bestow. In addition to these advantages, the present memoirs have derived others from the ta. lents of the biographer; who has displayed a variety of learning, a soundness of criticism, and a chaste and elaborate elegance of composition, which might have imparted charms to a history much less interesting in itself, than that of Buchanan. :
