Overview

Some Diversions of a Man of Letters by Emund Gosse

According to Wikipedia: "According to Wikipedia: "Sir Edmund William Gosse (21 September 1849 - 16 May 1928) was an English poet, author and critic; the son of Philip Henry Gosse and Emily Bowes... His most famous book is the autobiographical Father and Son, about his troubled relationship with his Plymouth Brethren father, Philip, which was dramatised for television by Dennis Potter. Historians caution, though, that notwithstanding its literary excellence, Gosse's narrative is often at odds with the verifiable facts of his own and his parents' lives.[5] In later life, he became a formative influence on Siegfried Sassoon, the nephew of his lifelong friend, Hamo Thornycroft. Sassoon's mother was a friend of Gosse's wife, Ellen. Gosse was also closely tied to figures such as Algernon Charles Swinburne, John Addington Symonds, and André Gide."
