Excerpt from Essays in Romantic Literature
Scholarship is largely a matter of temperament, and George Wyndham, though he had left Eton early to go into the army, could not expel the temperament, which nature had implanted within him. He had but to call upon a reserve of strength, half-suspected, to be generously answered. With um tiring diligence he read the Lives in Amyot's French as well as in North's English. To trace Shakespeare's debt in Coriolanus, Caesar, and Antony was a task very near to the heart of one whose love of Shake speare was not greater than his understanding. So he pegged steadily at Plutarch, in growing terror at his increasing size, ' and like all good workmen found a real joy in the work. He is a very jolly fellow to live with, ' he wrote, and I shall be sorry to say Good-bye.
