Other Literary Forms

(Literary Essentials: Short Fiction Masterpieces)

Max Beerbohm’s eclectic published work includes biography, caricatures and cartoons (with captions), dramatic and literary criticism, essays, letters, plays, radio broadcasts, and verse. Although critics often see Beerbohm as a many-sided figure, dabbling superficially in myriad literary forms, he nevertheless has a consistent comic development and outlook. The reader will find this special style of invention, exaggeration, and parody displayed in all his works, especially in his short fiction.
