Scholarly Commentary


This two volume autobiography by one of DGR's closest friends appeared early and exposed to the public many intimate aspects of DGR's life. Scott also published a number of DGR's works for the first time as well as versions of his works that were not available elsewhere. Scott's discussion of DGR's limericks in volume II is one of the most interesting and important that we have. Volume I prints only two of DGR's works but has much important biographical material.
