The work is rather too light, and bright, and sparkling; it wants [[DarkerAndEdgier shade]]; it wants to be stretched out here and there with a long chapter of sense, if it could be had; if not, of [[ContemplateOurNavels solemn specious nonsense]], about something [[FauxlosophicNarration unconnected with the story]]; an essay on writing, a critique on Walter Scott, or the history of Buonaparté, or anything that would [[MoodWhiplash form a contrast]], and bring the reader with [[EmotionalTorque increased delight]] to the playfulness and epigrammatism of the general style."
