The Life and Death of Richard Yea-and-Nay

by Maurice Hewlett

The hero of Mr. Hewlett's latest novel is Richard Cceur de Lion, whose character is peculiarly suited to the author's style. It is on a much wider plan than 'The Forest Lovers,' and while not historical in the sense of attempting to follow events with utmost exactness, it will be found to give an accurate portrayal of the life of the day, such as might well be expected from the author's previous work. There is a varied and brilliant background, the scene shifting from France to England, and also to Palestine. In a picturesque way, and a way that compels the sympathies of his readers, Mr. Hewlett reads into the heart of King Richard Cceur de Lion, showing how he was torn by two natures and how the title 'Yea and Nay' was peculiarly significant of his character. (Considered a masterpiece by T. E. Lawrence.)
