Leading American Novelists (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Leading American NovelistsIT is always a daring thing to name the leaders among men of genius. No matter how wisely the choice is made, there will be advocates of the rejected and assailants of the elect. The present choice of the leading American novelists is offered with a proper sense of critical frailty, but in the belief that time has already sifted out these names for special remembrance. The death of F. Marion Crawford, for example, is so recent that it has not seemed wise here to attempt either a biographical or a critical account of his work.In the critical portions of each biography I have at temped to make the novels more intelligible to the general reader, who, I take for granted, will have made himself familiar with the particular book under discussion. In so far as each biography pronounces any final judgment on the writer, I have tried to render the opinion of the best critics of to-day, rather than my own impression.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
