Laurence Oliphant : Land of Gilead, The

'Laurence Oliphant's sketches of the Druse villages are delightful, but his philosophy is something too tremendous. I am making the most prodigious effort to understand his book, but I have to catch hold of the furniture after a few pages to keep myself from turning round and round, and yet the absorption of such a man of the world as he is in a religious idea has something very fine in it.'

Century: 1850-1899     Reader/Listener/Group: Margaret Oliphant      Print: Book
