A suitable warning

This quote might have come from Doug Saunders in a Globe editorial on the fear of refugees, but instead it is from a book I have just taken up, The French Language and British Literature, 1756-1830, British Literature in Context in the Long Eighteenth Century, by Marcus Tomalin.

From the Introduction, page 2: "Whenever nationalism and foreignness are contested, appearance and reality are frequently divergent."
