DALZIELS' ILLUSTRATED GOLDSMITH:
A SKETCH OF THE LIFE OF OLIVER GOLDSMITH.
DALZIELS' ILLUSTRATED GOLDSMITH. THE VICAR OF WAKEFIELD.
CHAPTER I. The description of the family of Wakefield, in which a kindred likeness prevails as well of minds as of persons.
CHAPTER II. Family misfortunes.—The loss of fortune only serves to increase the pride of the worthy.
CHAPTER III. A migration.—The fortunate circumstances of our lives are generally found at last to be of our own procuring.
CHAPTER IV. A proof that even the humblest fortune may grant happiness, which depends not on circumstances, but constitution.
CHAPTER V. A new and great acquaintance introduced.—What we place most hopes upon generally proves most fatal.
CHAPTER VI. Happiness of a country fireside.
CHAPTER VII. A town wit described.—The dullest fellows may learn to be comical for a night or two.
CHAPTER VIII. An amour, which promises little good fortune, yet may be productive of much.
CHAPTER IX. Two ladies of great distinction introduced.—Superior finery ever seems to confer superior breeding.
CHAPTER X. The family endeavour to cope with their betters.—The miseries of the poor when they attempt to appear above their circumstances.
CHAPTER XI. The family still resolve to hold up their heads.
CHAPTER XII. Fortune seems resolved to humble the family of Wakefield.—Mortifications are often more painful than real calamities.
CHAPTER XIII. Mr. Burchell is found to be an enemy; for he has the confidence to give disagreeable advice.
CHAPTER XIV. Fresh mortifications, or a demonstration that seeming calamities may be real blessings.
CHAPTER XV. All Mr. Burchell's villany at once detected.— The folly of being over-wise.
CHAPTER XVI. The family use art, which is opposed by still greater.
CHAPTER XVII. Scarcely any virtue found to resist the power of long and pleasing temptation.
CHAPTER XVIII. The pursuit of a father to reclaim a lost child to virtue.
CHAPTER XIX. The description of a person discontented with the present government, and apprehensive of the loss of our liberties.
CHAPTER XX. The History of a Philosophic Vagabond pursuing novelty, but losing content.
CHAPTER XXI. The short continuance of friendship among the vicious, which is coeval only with mutual satisfaction.
CHAPTER XXII. Offences are easily pardoned where there is love at bottom.
CHAPTER XXIII. None but the guilty can be long and completely miserable.
CHAPTER XXIV. Fresh calamities.
CHAPTER XXV. No situation, however wretched it seems, but has some sort of comfort attending it.
CHAPTER XXVI. A reformation in the gaol.—To make laws complete, they should reward as well as punish.
CHAPTER XXVII. The same subject continued.
CHAPTER XXVIII. Happiness and misery rather the result of prudence than of virtue in this life; temporal evils or felicities being regarded by Heaven as things merely in themselves trifling, and unworthy its care in the distribution.
CHAPTER XXIX. The equal dealings of Providence demonstrated with regard to the happy and the miserable here below, that, from the nature of pleasure and pain, the wretched must be repaid the balance of their sufferings in the life hereafter.
CHAPTER XXX. Happier prospects begin to appear.—Let us be inflexible, and fortune will at last change in our favour.
CHAPTER XXXI. Former benevolence now repaid with unexpected interest.
