36. ‘Lafcadio Hearn, the Mystic’. Review of Blue Ghost: A Study of Lafcadio Hearn, by Jean Temple. Daily Telegraph, 31 July 1931, p. 15.

Blunden finds Hearn’s writings (see D9) ‘mainly exercises in embellishment’ and Temple’s study of them ‘florid’: Hearn ‘could at all hours conjure clouds of incense out of his ink-pot’ and Temple ‘feels’ strongly the ‘satiety of the perfumery’. Compare 32.
