Scholarly Commentary


DGR's other illustration for his sister's book of poetry, The Prince's Progress and Other Poems (1866), carries a strong personal inflection, and the same is true of this woodcut for the title page, which quotes line 3 of the title poem, “The Prince's Progress”: “The long hours go and come and go”.
