Passages with Solved Precis

The test of a great book is whether we want to read it only once or more than once. Any really great book we want o read the second time even more than we wanted to read it the first time; and every additional time that we read it we find new meanings and new beauties in it. A book that a person of education and good taste does not care to read more than once is very probably not much worth. But we cannot consider the judgement of a single individual infallible. The opinion that makes a book great must be the opinion of many.

For even the greatest critics are apt to have certain dullness’s, certain in appreciations A man must be many sided to utter a trust-worthy estimate of many books. We may doubt the judgement of the single critic at times. But, there is no doubt possible in regard to the judgement of generations. Even, if we cannot at once perceive anything good in a book which has been admired and praised for hundreds of years, we may be sure that by trying, by studying it carefully, we shall at last be able to feel the reason of this admiration and praise. The best of all libraries for a poor man would be a library entirely composed of such great works only, books which have passed the test of time.

A Good Book

A really good book is the one, which we like to read time and again. Such a book should be able to reveal some new idea every time, we go through it. It should have stood the test of time and generations should have approved it. A single critic, howsoever eminent, cannot be fully relied upon as a safe guide. The library of even a poor man should have such classics.
