Elbert Hubbard describes the homes of authors, poets, social reformers and other prestigious people, reflecting on how their surroundings may have influenced them. These short essays are part biography and part pontification of Hubbard's opinion of the subject and their oeuvre.

In this volume he reflects on famous love affairs of well-known couples like William Godwin and Mary Wollstonecraft, Dante and Beatrice, and Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton.
