“Mr. Huneker is, in the best sense, a critic; he listens to the music and gives you his impressions as rapidly and in as few words as possible; or he sketches the composers in fine, broad, sweeping strokes with a magnificent disregard for unimportant details....  A distinctly original and very valuable contribution to the world’s tiny musical literature.”—­J.F.  RUNCIMAN, in London Saturday Review.

“In ‘The Spiral Road’ and in some of the other stories both fantasy and narrative may be compared with Hawthorne in his most unearthly moods.  The younger man has read his Nietzsche and has cast off his heritage of simple morals.  Hawthorne’s Puritanism finds no echo in these modern souls, all sceptical, wavering and unblessed.  But Hawthorne’s splendor of vision and his power of sympathy with a tormented mind do live again in the best of Mr. Huneker’s stories.”—­London Academy (Feb. 3, 1906).
