History of Pompey the Little, The by Francis Coventry (1725 - 1754)

History of Pompey the Little, The by Francis Coventry (1725 - 1754)

LibriVox

"Pompey, the son of Julio and Phyllis, was born A.D. 1735, at Bologna in Italy, a place famous for lap-dogs and sausages." At an early age he was carried away from the boudoir of his Italian mistress by Hillario, an English gentleman illustrious for his gallantries, who brought him to London.
The rest of the history is really a chain of social episodes, each closed by the incident that Pompey becomes the property of some fresh person. In this way we find ourselves in a dozen successive scenes, each strongly contrasted with the others. It is the art of the author that he knows exactly how much to tell us without wearying our attention, and is able to make the transition to the next scene a plausible one. (Summary by Edmund Gosse in "Gossip in a Library" http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/11628)
