The Translation of a Savage

by Gilbert Parker

"To tell such a story convincingly a man must have what I call the rarest of literary gifts--the power to condense. Of the good feeling and healthy wisdom of this little tale others no doubt have spoken and will speak. But I have chosen this technical quality for praise, because in this I think Mr. Parker has made the furthest advance on his previous work. Indeed, in workmanship he seems to be improving faster than any of the younger novelists."--A. T. QUILLER-COUCH, in the London Spectator.
