Francis Bret Hart is much too flowery for me. I think he may have begun the phrase "purple prose." As I'm too flowery for me as well, that really is a criticism. When he gets to his "sketches," as he calls them, he winds and twists around so much one cannot for the life of one keep track of where we are. as they say today "TMI." Too much information! It doesn't give me impetus to find out if he ever wrote anything else. His writiing is just too much of a struggle for what one gets out of it. ( )
