Six typescript lectures by John Cowper Powys on Charles Dickens, George Eliot, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Charles Lamb, Sir Walter Scott and William Makepeace Thackeray, with some revision, mainly in the author's hand, and an additional passage by the author at the end of the final lecture. The scripts may have been taken down by a stenographer from Powys's delivery when he was lecturing in the United States. The lectures were published in Singular Figures: Six Lectures by John Cowper Powys, ed. by Paul Roberts (Colchester, 1989).
