By virtue of an undismayed and undeceived honesty he has been able to see what actually happens during moments of overwhelming emotion when the exact cause of the exaltation is usually unnoticed.There are episodes of gorgeous comedy and satire.dicta about writing so honest and true.will very likely become common axioms, so vivid and sincere and convincing is their presentation.".
