He reminds me of Stephen Crane, but that can't be right.

Can we have a clue?

Yes, the great Walt Whitman, I love his work so much, and I love him, too.

You know, Emerson picked up on his greatness while nobody else did.

Blue Moon, I've read Justin Kaplan's biography of Whitman. It's worth reading, but it's not the important biography Whitman deserves. It's not in the same class as Richard Ellmann's bios of Joyce, Wilde, etc.

I like your Yeats signature!

This time, not a writer. Two photos of the same person.

No clues this time. You guys are so good, you'll get the answer by just looking at the pictures. No right clicking allowed!

Help us avoid the temptation, Constance Smile - copy the URL of any pic you like, load it into tinyurl (just google tinyurl to find the program), then post the new tinyurl into ATU's image function. Bingo! No more cheatin', an' no more cheaters. Not that any ATUer would cheat! No cat

Indeed! Mr Bull was so famous, he even toured the world with Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West Show - the show even performed before Queen Victoria.

Here's Mr Bull and Mr Cody in a famous publicity photograph:

The subject of a book I'm reading:

Yes, that's Alice Liddell. I just finished a new small book about Alice and Charles Dodgson by Simon Winchester, the author of a number of wonderful books. This book was surprising. Winchester usually exhausts all there is to say about his subject, but here his treatment is topical, even rather slight. He says that the curator of photographs at Princeton, where the photograph is, won't let anyone see it! The photo is locked in a vault forever.

Winchester's best books are The Man Who Loved China, The Professor and the Madman, and The Meaning of Everything. The last two are about the making of the OED.
