The following Essays are reprinted from The Atlantic Monthly and The Nation, with little more revision than was necessary to cover unimportant omissions or to combine, in one or two instances, kindred articles. In the hope that they may afford some illustration, however fragmentary and intermittent, of the love of letters and of interest in ideal living, the author offers them to the reader.
