BY THE AUTHOR OF THESE TRANSLATIONS


'DENYS OF AUXERRE'

A DRAMA IN VERSE


'Such a mastery of fine style as can come only from the genuine
emotion of great things deeply felt.'—Times.

'A poet of true fervour, sincere inspiration and uncommon
technical accomplishment.'—Daily Telegraph.

'It abounds in passages of real lyrical beauty, and we come here
and there, not very rarely, on lines which haunt the memory.'—
Irish Times.


Christophers, 22 Berners Street, W.C.
