Arthur Christopher Benson (1862–1925)
The Silent Isle
Fourth Impression: 1913
Musings on the conduct of life, literature etc.
From the author’s Introduction:
“The book that follows is an attempt, or rather a hundred attempts, to sketch some of the details of life, seen from a simple plane enough, and with no desire to conform it to a theory, or to find anything very definite in it, or to omit anything because it did not fit in with prejudices or predilections. The only unity of mood which it reflects is the unity of purpose which comes from a decision.”
