This article focuses on the book "Maria Cross," by Donat O' Donnell. The first eight essays, in the book are excellent critical researches, conducted with perception, and fine intelligence, into the work of these men. It is in these that the critic is most illuminating. An effort to establish this common pattern of feeling, externalized in their work, occupies the final essay, from which the book takes its tide. It is in this essay that the ingenious critic seems it fail, although to fail brilliantly, through an effort to prove too much. It is not shown that there is "an imaginative pattern which is peculiarly receptive of Catholicism."
