The quality of such literature is of a high order. The fault to be found with it from the point of view of a teacher is that it is too highly specialized. The tendency on the part of authors on this subject is to select some particular industry or line of production and describe a particular system, attempting to make such typical of the entire subject.Most systems are accompanied by elaborate forms.

A posthumous collection of 36 early works by Patrick Lafcadio Hearn, also known as Koizumi Yakumo European-born American-Japanese author, orientalist and philosopher, who wrote novels and articles with exotic themes in highly precise and polished prose. Lyrical and passionate, these brief romantic sketches can be regarded as prose poems. The “Fantastics” proper and the “Other fancies” have been grouped indiscriminately in chronological order, though differing greatly in spirit and in excellence of style. But it is not alone the charm that clings about all that is weird and fanciful that gives value to this early work of Hearn’s.
