The Complete Angler is the only treatise written in dialogues that is worth a halfpenny. Many elegant dialogues have been written, (such as Bishop Berkeley’s Minute Philosopher,) but in all of them the interlocutors are merely abstract arguments personified, not living dramatic characters as in Walton, where everything is alive, the fishes are absolutely characterized, and birds and animals are as interesting as men and women.” Lamb in a letter to Robert Lloyd.
