Excerpt from The Memoirs of a Failure: With an Account of the Man and His Manuscript

Dunlevy was a student at the University of Virginia at the time when some of us, who were undergraduates, began to notice and comment upon his personality. He was considerably older than the other students; and we, imagined that this was the reason why he held him'self aloof from us. We used to watch him from the athletic field on pleasant afternoons. He was wont to stand on the great ?ight of stone steps which led from a shaded avenue to gently sloping terraces that lie before the Rotunda, the name of the college library. Dunlevy used to stand at the foot of these steps, looking intently at the lofty porticos, as though impressed with the majesty of this copy of the Pantheon, its majesty in all its simplicity.
