Louise Chandler Moulton : Swallow-flights [and Other Verses]

'About "The Crown of Life", It is almost the only one of G. G. [George Gissing]'s books I haven’t read. It didn’t appeal to me—it was not a good Gissing book. Just now I have been reading "Will Warburton", recently published Constable, and though it can’t compare with the strong bitter work of earlier years it is very readable. "Veranilda" I did not like so it remained unread here on my table until a friend carried it off to read a few days ago. I do not read many books— many books set to me by good friends are left unread and I blame them for wasting books on me— unless it is poetry. Your poetry I always read with rare pleasure and for the good verse you have given the world. I for one am deeply grateful to you.'

Century: 1850-1899 / 1900-1945     Reader/Listener/Group: William Henry Hudson      Print: Book
