Harold Child (1869-1945) was a literary critic and writer who was prominent in the development of dramatic criticism, notably in his work on the history of Shakespearean production. Originally published in 1948, this collection appeared shortly after Child's death, and contains a memoir by noted Cambridge publisher Sir Sydney Castle Roberts (1887-1966). The text presents a broad selection of Child's writings, including everything from critical essays to informal pieces on topics such as 'Reading in Bed', exhibiting his lucid and engaging style. This is a highly readable book which will be of value to anyone with an interest in the works of Child, journalism and literary criticism.
