Obiter Dicta is a classic English literature history and criticism text by Augustine Birrell.

'An obiter dictum, in the language of the law, is a gratuitous opinion, an individual impertinence, which, whether it be wise or foolish, right or wrong, bindeth none--not even the lips that utter it.'

Contents: Carlyle -- On the alleged obscurity of Mr. Browning's poetry -- Truth-hunting -- Actors -- A rogue's memoirs -- The via media -- Falstaff
