I have tried to present it to the indifferent public under four of its aspects: childhood , adolescence , maturity and public life . The stories are arranged in this order. I have written it for the most part in a style of scrupulous meanness and with the conviction that he is a very bold man who dares to alter in the presentment, still more to deform, whatever he has seen and heard. - Letters II. 134 </li></ul>
