Example text

It could never have been finished, AUBREY BEARDSLEY for it had never really been begun; but what undoubted, singular, literary ability there is in it, all the same ! " At one time he was going to write an essay on " Les Liaisons Dangereuses" at another he had planned a book on Rousseau. But his plans for writing changed even more quickly than his plans for doing drawings, and with less profitable results in the meantime.
