In it he looks back lovingly and without regrets on the past fifteen years, beginning with his return from America and his settling in Battersea; like Joyce, in self-imposed exile from Ireland. These were the years in which his great talents, lying in obscurity in plays which were never produced, burst forth in the glorious prose of his autobiography. ...Included are a superb account of his visit to Cambridge, where he was honored, but not completely understood; magnificent passages describing his deep and touching friendship with George Bernard Shaw and Mrs. Shaw; scathing denunciations of his critics; lively remarks on the poetry to T.S. Eliot.
