Notes

Offprint from From the Hills of Dream, inscribed pseudonymously by the author on the first blank, "To George Cotterell, Poet and Friend, In Christmas Greeting, from Fiona MacLeod". Sharp later dedicated Ecce Puella and Other Prose Imagining (1896), which he published under his real name, to Cotterell (1839-1898). Writer and editor William Sharp (1855-1905) adopted the pseudonym Fiona MacLeod in 1894 and secretly wrote under this name for the rest of his life. Sharp "constructed an elaborate series of deceptions, implicit and explicit, to maintain his secret: he even contributed a fictional entry for Fiona MacLeod to Who's Who" (ODNB). The Silence of Amor first appeared as the final section of From the Hills of Dream (1896).
