Excerpt from The Autobiography and Letters of Mrs. M. O. W. Oliphant
In this quiet confidence that everything had been so perfectly arranged for her, with her mind clear, even a little ¿icker of fun in her eyes at times, always a tender smile and word for those she loved, a g... reat writer passed away from us, leaving a blank that there is certainly no one capable of filling. There have been, perhaps there are (and she herself would have been the first to say it with full belief), greater novelists, but who has ever achieved the same variety of literary work with any thing like the same level of excellence? A great deal of her very best remains at present anonymous - bio graphical and critical papers, and others dealing with an extraordinary variety of subjects. But merely to divide her books into classes gives some little idea of the range of her powers. Her novels, long and short.
