It is something to be thankful for that we are not all alike. The individual differences that separate us may be small but they ensure that everyone is unique. Many of us try to minimise our differences but there are those without such inhibitions who exaggerate their personal egos in one direction or another. All such characters are a bit larger than life; they are somewhat inflated, somewhat obsessive, even a little mad but we can be grateful even as we deride them since they show us how very level-headed we are ourselves. The people here chosen include those only mildly off-beat together with more colourful characters. There is a parson-highwayman, a man who washed trees, a super-fraud, a duellist and a miser. They are not Likely to persuade us that eccentricity is a good thing but they may enlarge our conception of the wide stage of life and the strange roles that some people play.
