|Title:||John Cornelius: His Life and Adventures|
|Publisher:||Macmillan and Co., Limited|
Walpole, as the biographer of the life of John Cornelius, wrote a long, first person narrative of the life of a genius who could never bring his world of dreams in tune with the world of reality for himself or for those who read his books, a writer who strove desperately to produce serious novels, and who died famous and acknowledged for three slim volumes of fairy tales. Walpole wrote romantically of a character whose life was never very real, and who could not find happiness, except at odd moments because of this gulf between him and the world.
