|2nd preface very annoying

in consequence of the missive, the prefaces, penned by Emmeline
I read both prefaces as well and found the first one interesting though wordy, and the second one just plain awful. I can understand wanting to publish something annonymously until it is known how it will be received, that seems somewhat humble. But then the rest of the second preface is terribly arrogant. Oh he says he can't compare to Shakespere, but then goes on to explain how the book resembles Shakespere. And then lots of quoting in other languages to show how educated he was. I'm afraid it put me in a mood to see the story a very silly indeed.
Not to say it isn't entertaining. I plan on going on to the second chapter as soon as the kids are in bed tonight because I really must find out what is going to happen!
