A Comedy of Masks

by Ernest Dowson

The story may be given very briefly. It opens in a Bohemian circle of writers' and artists, who frequent the cafis of Soho. Rainham, a middle-aged business-man, and Lightmark, a young artist, are the two chief figures of the story; the one, sober, self-repressed, high-principled; the other, irresponsible, over-confident, flighty. Rainham has long been in love with a certain Eve Sylvester, but has never spoken of his sentiment; and Lightmark,gaining sudden success by a picture whose inspiration is a gratuitous piece of plagiarism on his part, carries off the lady into matrimony. But before the story opens he has seduced a certain Kitty Crichton, who turns up with her child, and confronts the young wife with her story.
