Word Portraits of Famous Writers by WOTTON, Mabel E.

Mabel Elizabeth Wotton, an author herself, moved in the literary circles of the late nineteenth century establishing many close friendships, She presents for us here, not literary criticism nor biographical sketches, but “word portraits,” shore vignettes of a persons physical appearance and elements of behavior or personality. These are all drawn from many sources — biographies, newspapers, or personal friends of the authors. Some descriptions are based on paintings or drawings, but the majority are derived from personal acquaintance. Thus, we have a unique view of these famous artists that we seldom read. – Summary by Larry Wilson
