Death and the Author

David Ellis

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the lives and works of Max Beerbohm and Enoch Soames. Max Beerbohm published an elegant and ingenious short story about literary fame in 1919, while Enoch Soames is a typical poet from the 1890s, outlandishly dressed and devoted to French literature. When Beerbohm meets Soames, Soames confesses his frustration and admits that a great artist's faith in himself, and in the verdict of posterity, is not enough to keep him happy.

Keywords:   Max Beerbohm, Enoch Soames, literary, French literature, frustration
