1890 How to Fail in Literature: A Lecture
What Our Customers Say...
An Important Work, First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding
A first edition of a lecture given by Andrew Lang at the South Kensington Museum, reworked and augmented for print. The author provides amusing stylistic advice for writers, discussing tropes associated with literary forms such as the lullaby and ghost tale. Lang was a Scottish poet, novelist, and literary critic, and whilst he is better known for his work on folklore, this work provides a humorous account of the biggest mistakes writers can make.
