This does not mean that Nova Scotians were more sensitive to satire than were Americans and British. Much in later Canadian writing—and not merely the work of that obvious disciple Stephen Leacock—is indebted to him. Hopewell having taken leave of his escort, retired to his cabin, very much overpowered by his feelings. Originally called "Sketches of Nova Scotia," these pieces were almost immediately reprinted as a discontinuous work of fiction, united by Sam's contemptuous criticisms, under the title of The Clockmaker; or, The Sayings and Doings of Samuel Slick of Slickville. It may be further argued that Slick himself is something of a folk-hero combining the diverse and sometimes conflicting ingredients that make up a national character.

I might assign many reasons for this modest course, all of them plausible, and some of them indeed quite dignified. With the appearance, however, of a new generation of Nova Scotians and with the development after confederation of a growing cultural nationalism, something approaching a Haliburton cult began to appear in Nova Scotia. Some of the best critical work appears in the introductions to various modern editions. Klinck, ed. Although at this early stage in his intellectual development as an historian he tended to accept the past uncritically as he read it in the works of other men, he did independently argue a position on the expulsion of the Acadians that transcends national prejudice.

In fact, he was more than that. He admired the English for their traditions and institutions, of which he felt himself to be a part. For instance, a military man is not quarrelsome, for no man doubts his courage; but a snob is.

Thomas Chandler Haliburton book

My object in mentioning the subject to you, is to request the favour of you, to persuade Sam not to be too sensitive on these topics; not to take offence, where it is not intended; and, above all, rather to vindicate his nationality by his conduct, than to justify those aspersions, by his intemperate behaviour.

One factor in his abandoning an active political career for a judicial one was that it gave him more leisure in which to write. Haliburton was a born Tory, whose father and grandfather had been lawyers and judges. These sections differ also in dialect and in humour, as much as in other things, and to as great, if not a greater extent, than the natives of different parts of Great Britain vary from each other.

In Haliburton had married Louisa Neville, and the couple had 11 children, three of whom died in infancy. How impressive, how beautiful, how dignified was the answer of the Shunamite woman to Elisha, who in his gratitude to her for her hospitality and kindness, made her a tender of his interest at court.

The last personage is Jube Japan, a black servant of the Attache. A woman never forgets the becomins. This does not mean that Nova Scotians were more sensitive to satire than were Americans and British.

By combining both, Haliburton assured himself of the minor success which such popular entertaining writers as Charles James Lever and Theodore Hook were enjoying, but by adding a moral earnestness intelligently rooted in an environment that was genuine and believable but sufficiently remote from British readers to have a romantic charm, he was able to achieve a much greater success of a more lasting nature.

As I do not intend then to write often, I shall not wire-draw my subjects, for the mere purpose of filling my pages. Wholly to exclude these would be to violate the usages of American life; to introduce them oftener would be to confound two dissimilar dialects, and to make an equal departure from the truth.

He entered political life shortly after, and was elected member of the House of Assembly. Klinck, ed. Every body was surprised, but as every body attributed it to long practice, they were not so much astonished as I was, who knew it was wholly owing to chance. Much research has gone into the sources of The clockmaker.

In it he tried to improve on his reputation as a satirist by turning his examination of human foibles from their peripheral manifestations in Nova Scotia to their centre in Britain.

Parks, The only man who really is what he appears to be is — a gentleman. When she seed me, she gave a scream, popt her head onder the clothes, like a terrapin, and vanished—well I vanished too. A man, who writes thus, can write for ever.

Hopewell, Samuel Slick, Esq. A crisis in his personal relations with Joseph Howe in the s is a further confirmation that Haliburton was rapidly losing the balance with respect to the political and economic realities in Nova Scotia that was one of the strengths of The clockmaker, first series.

I might perhaps be pardoned, if I took it for granted, that the dramatis personae of this work were sufficiently known, not to require a particular introduction. I do not call myself a good shot. I never liked this appointment he has received: neither his education, his habits, nor his manners have qualified him for it.
