FRANCIS STUART

 

Sir, - Who is this "doyen" of Irish literature, Francis Stuart? Kevin Myers's hostile assessment of Stuart sheds little light on this mysterious figure and his work; his condemnation of Stuart ironically heightens curiosity about this writer rather than dampening it! An objective assessment of this work, or perhaps even a few words from Stuart himself, would be timely. - Yours, etc.,
