    Expert Review :

    My dear Paul Boukget, I would have you accept the dedication of this little volume as the expression, however inadequate, of the rare debt of pleasure I owe to you as poet, as novelist, and as critic. But over and above this, it seems fitting I should couple the name of the author of the brilliant and suggestive Essais de Psychologie Contemporaine and the more recent Portraits dE crivains with that of the pioneer of modern literary criticism, of criticism as a fine art that I should associate here your name and that of Saiute-B euve, that delicate analyst and dainty forager among the cultivated flowers and wildwood blooms of literature the naturalist of minds, as he called himself. Permit me, then, to inscribe to you this short prefatory essay, where I present, forE nglish readers, as simply and concisely as practicable, the significant facts in the life of the master-critic, and certain dominant traits physiognomic characteristics, so to say of his achievement in literature, an achievement at once so great in extent and so complex in its nature. How winsome and graceful, even now, even in translation, are those Portraits, with their delicate aroma of rare culture, with their ever-recurrent, vivid, flashing fancies and inspirations. I can but regret the insufficiency of my acknowledgment; but you have read how it was the wont of the I slanders naively to ofier the foreign traffickers from oversea their rude iron in exchange for wrought gold. Your friend, WILLIAM SHARP. London, Midsummer
