A mixed bag, certainly. The essays are less analysis than appreciation, and when they range beyond effusive praise, primarily it is to focus on Cabell's style rather than themes or character. To be fair, that seems to have been the point of the Colophon Club's Symposium, and I suspect several of the pieces (Bregenzer's in particular) were more successful in recitation than as essays read afterward.

Notable contributions from Mencken, Mooney, a couple others; among them, Cabell himself, who submits a dialogue between his younger and older selves, in the manner of Kennaston / Horvendile.

A suggestion from several contributors to look to Anatole France as similar to Cabell in style and setting, if not in characterisation. ( )
