Story of my heart; my autobiography

John Richard Jefferies was an English nature writer, noted for his depiction of English rural life in essays, books of natural history, and novels. His childhood on a small Wiltshire farm had a great influence on him and provides the background to all his major works of fiction

The title of this book is ' The Story of my Heart: my Autobiography,' but it is not an autobiography in the ordinary sense of the word. It contains no history of the events of Richard Jefferies' life. It is in no way concerned with his birth or his marriage, his actions, or his fortunes. All that is known of these has been told in ' The Eulogy of Richard Jefferies/ by Walter Besant. Sunt lachrymose rerum, as the ancient poet sang, and for those who have tears to shed, what story is there more sure to draw them than that tale of heroic struggle against the agony of disease, of genius unappreciated until it was too late

The Story of my Heart Surely it is one of the most singular books that man of genius ever wrote. It is well described by its title. It is an outpouring of Jefferies' innermost soul. Like many others, he found himself at odds with the world. He saw the beauty of the land, the grandeur of the sea, the interest of life above all of human life but he was not satisfied.

 He longed for more beauty, a fuller grandeur, a deeper interest. This feeling completely mastered him, and in ' The Story of my Heart ' he poured out with what strength and what skill he possessed the intensity of his longing. In republishing such a book it will not be thought out of place to gather together such few scraps of his writing as remain which seem to throw light on its genesis and its meaning.
