Excerpt from Great Characters of Fiction Our aim, then, in collecting this series of papers is to Show the true uses of fiction by promoting a taste for the best and noblest kinds of it, and our plan has been to give, as it were, a portrait of the principal character presented in each standard novel or tale selected - a portrait painted with such careful and delicate touches as may cause it to Stand out before our readers sufficiently to induce them to Study the work for themselves, without telling enough of the story to Spoil its interest if, perchance, they are not already acquainted with it.
