1895. Early successes with contributed prose and verse to various journals encouraged Aldrich to pursue a literary career. For many years he wrote exclusively for the Atlantic Monthly prior to becoming its editor, but it is as a poet that he is best remembered. His short stories, especially those in Marjorie Daw and Other People, are noted for their naturalness and craftsmanship. Contents: Marjorie Daw; A Rivermouth Romance; Quite So; A Young Desperado; Miss Mehetabel's Son; A Struggle for Life; Mademoiselle Olympe Zabriski; and Pere Antoine's Date-Palm.
