Jane Welsh and Jane Carlyleby Elizabeth A. Drew
What Miss Drew has set out to do in this sympathetic study is to present the Jane Carlyle of flesh and blood as a corrective, on the one hand to the misunderstood heroine created by Froude and Mrs, Ireland, and on the other hand to the hypochondriacal neurotic conceived by Sir James Crichton-Browne and accepted by Mr. D. A. Willson. Miss Drew presents the Jane Welsh and Jane Carlyle of life, at the same time loving and cynical, harsh and sympathetic, intolerant and patient, kind and cruel. Illus. This title is cited and recommended by Catalogue of the Lamont Library, Harvard College.
