“Mr. R. J. Gordon's "Ophelia" (207) is, however, good strong work, owing little to any foreign example; the handling is loose, "sloppy," and quite unconventional, and though the structure and modelling are not as sound as Mr. Dannat's (for instance), the rich scheme of gold and green is fascinating in colour” (163).
