Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

By W. S. Landor, published 1824–9, followed by Imaginary Conversations of Greeks and Romans, published 1853.

These represent the bulk of Landor's prose work. The conversations are between characters from classical times to the 19th cent.; some are dramatic, some idyllic, some satirical. There are some 150 dialogues and the quality is uneven, for Landor's own passionate views tend to obtrude.

Subjects: Literature.
