Excerpt from An Old Castle and Other Essays Seldom is it the teacher's lot to have any of his work perpetuated in lasting literary form. But Professor Winchester's students will remember how the work in the classroom led up to finished summary lectures. They developed out of the rich autumn mould of his acquisitions, year after year, and showed us best of all how thorough and thoughtful study had enabled him to "see into the life of things." In these talks to students lay the origins of the public lectures which charmed and enlightened a far more widely ranging audience. Even the latter, Professor Winchester rarely published. Therefore certain typical examples, representative both of his power as a teacher and his appeal as a lecturer, it has now seemed best to give to the world. "Art," once wrote their author, "is the only way the individual has of perpetuating his personality." In this way these papers are not alone of intrinsic value but fitly memorial. Professor Winchester admirably illustrated his own ideal of a critic, - one who could "quicken your feeling for what is essential and characteristic in an author's work." Hundreds can testify to the success with which he did this in the lecture-room or through the printed page. The range of these essays indicates in some measure the catholicity of his taste and the scope of his powers of literary appreciation. He was always, I think, especially interested in the man behind the book. Interest in character and in the work as an index to character was what led him into a method of criticism pronouncedly biographical.
