A Christmas Garland was first published in 1912, and has long been out of print. A Masterpiece of parody. com User, November 14, 1997. It was a pleasant surprise to find a modern (1993) release of this book. Fans of Max's other works will enjoy this book because of the thorough introduction by N. John Hall. Many of the writers parodied by Max were familiar to me in name only.

Max Beerbohm's parodies are funny, even now, when the reputations of the writers spoofed have tarnished or faded. George Moore may be all but forgotten. G**rg* M**r* lives:

There is but one doorstep worth scrubbing. The doorstep of Charles Dickens.... Did he write many books? I know not, it does not greatly matter, he wrote the "Pickwick Papers"; that suffices. I have read as yet but one chapter, describing a Christmas party in a country house. Strange that anyone should have essayed to write about anything but that! Christmas—I see it now—is the only moment in which men and women are really alive, are really worth writing about. At other seasons they do not exist for the purpose of art. I spit on all seasons except Christmas....

One may admire G. K. Chesterton, and still realize that Beerbohm has his number:

I find myself in agreement with the cynics in so far that I admit that Christmas, as now observed, tends to create melancholy. But the reason for this lies solely in our own misconception. Christmas is essentially a dies iræ. If the cynics will only make up their minds to treat it as such, even the saddest and most atrabilious of them will acknowledge that he has had a rollicking day.

In short, whether it's G. B. Shaw, or Henry James, H. G. Wells, or Rudyard Kipling, M*ax B**rb*hm has written a very funny Christmas story in each one's all-too-imitable style. Read 'em and weep.

  • Gardall
Beautiful art to go with Christmas decorations

I love to read and this was exactly what I wanted. I loved these stories and will get more later.

I had high hopes for this but they were unjustified -- or maybe I'm just not the right audience for Beerbohm. I like him as a historical figure much more than I like him as a writer.
  • Sadaron above the Gods
This book was very attractive in presentation and the contents were perfect for the Christmas season.
It appealed to me because of the art and the format of the book. The cover and paper were also
of very good quality paper and was a pleasure to read.
  • Iaran
This book consists of short Christmas stories each written in the style of nineteen and early twentieth century writers who were well known in Beerbohm's time. And it is really fun when you are familiar with the virtues and excesses of writers such as Dickens, Wells, Waugh, Chesterton or Orwell but does not work at all with those writers who are less familiar to a contemporary reader..
This was a very boring story, I wish the author had done more to make it more interesting. I don't think I want to read any more of this author's work.
