The divine fire
A rather prolix study of a poet who, like Francis Thompson, was out of his element in the mercenary trafficking and immoral compromises of the world—especially of the literary world—and visits the depths of misery and destitution; but, unlike Thompson, at length wins recognition and the love he had worshipped from afar.
Incidentally sketches an unscrupulous bookseller—the poet's father—successful editors, an aesthetic Oxford don, and other luminaries little and big of the literary firmament.
