Little Essays of Love and Virtue: By Havelock Ellis. (A. & C. Black, Ltd., London, 1922. Pp. 187.)

E. J.

In these days when hatred, malice and all forms of uncharitableness seem to be the dominant forces in public life it is a relief to turn to the writings of such a man as Havelock Ellis, so gentle and soothing, yet brave and hopeful and imbued throughout by a spirit of good will. This volume of essays, the fourth he has published in the last few years, is written for the young and Dr. Ellis says in his Preface: 'I would prefer to leave to their judgment the question as to whether this book is suitable to be placed in the hands of older people. It might only give them pain.' They treat the subjects of love, marriage and the family in the attractive, well-informed and broad-minded fashion so characteristic of the author.
