I know very little about his life - this sounds like it would be tough to read, but eye-opening.

Somehow KG just got on with things, but there is a strong sense of sublimation about his life. Matthew Dennison doesn't labour his points - it is as I say quite a spare account - but the reader can't help but wish KG had had more happiness.

How very sad; I doubt, then, that I shall attempt it.

Better perhaps just to enjoy The Wind in the Willows.

This sounds a good read, despite the sadness of KG:s life. Certainly interesting to speculate what may have been if he had had a different life. Poignant too that the Wind in the Willows has remained an iconic book loved by so many generations, yet born out of much suffering.
