Ross, Ronald   
(2 of 3 for author by title)
Published:   1910
Publisher:John Murray
Tags:fiction, poetry

These slender volumes, by Sir Ronald Ross, deserve to be read with sympathetic interest for more reasons than one—not least because they reflect the mind, and throw light on the spirit which has guided the work, of a man whose services to medical science are great indeed. In the long history of medicine and of poetry we can call to mind many a physician who has been also a poet. No great physician has ever likewise been that rare and wonderful thing, a great poet, for the toilsome life of the one is not to be combined with the fine freedom, the careless rapture of the other. But there is a certain excellence which, though it fall far short of supreme perfection, is still a very fine and splendid thing, and to such excellence I think Sir Ronald Ross has certainly attained.
