Beyond this, little presents itself for record in the outward facts of this upright and beneficial career, bright with genius and coruscating with wit, dark with the lengthening and deepening shadow of death. (Summary from The Biographical Introduction by William Michael ...

[or] whose writing has attained a wide popularity.” This book was published in 1918. (Summary ta ...
