GOSSE, EDMUND (1849–), English man of letters (see 12.268), was the recipient Sept. 21 1919, his 70th birthday, of an address of congratulation signed by a large body of Englishmen of note in art or letters, in recognition of his long and distinguished service to literary criticism. This was followed up by the presentation to him on their behalf of a portrait bust, Nov. 9 1920. His more recent publications include Portraits and Studies (1912); Collected Essays (1912); Inter Arma (1916); The Life of A. C. Swinburne (1917); Three French Moralists (1918); Some Diversions of a Man of Letters (1919).
