An entertaining adventure story done in the style of Robert Louis Stevenson, filled with hidden treasure, tragedy, romance & a cunningly evil villain.
Foe-Farrell is told by an English officer in a dugout this is a story of hate and its influence on the hater and his victim. Worked out in an ingenious atmosphere which sometimes combines farce with real tragedy and which carries the scene from London, about the world even to a shipwrecked boat for eight days on the open seas. The hater degenerates and takes on the characteristics most despised in his enemy. Points the obvious moral that “the more you beat Fritz by becoming like him, the more he has won.”
Quiller-Couch was a noted literary critic, publishing editions of some of Shakespeare’s plays (in the New Shakespeare, published by Cambridge University Press, with Dover Wilson) and several critical works, including Studies in Literature (1918) and On the Art of Reading (1920). He edited a successor to his verse anthology: Oxford Book of English Prose, which was published in 1923. He left his autobiography, Memories and Opinions, unfinished; it was nevertheless published in 1945.
