OK, this is an odd one.
I have finished reading a collection of literary spoofs by Bret Harte. I can identify which authors he's mocking except one. Sometimes it's pretty obvious. ("R-DY-D K-PL-G" is clearly Rudyard Kipling, for example.) Sometimes I had to do some educated guessing. (I was able to figure out that "CH-S R-DE" was the forgotten author Charles Reade.)
One defeats my efforts to decipher it. Here it is:http://www.telelib.com/authors/H/HarteB ... borem.html
If anybody out there can tell me who "E. N---s- W--t---t" is supposed to be, let me know. (I can't even think of a common surname that would fit that pattern.)
EDIT: Never mind! By searching for an old review of Harte's little book of parodies, I was able to figure out that "Dan'l Borem" is a take-off on David Harum
by Edward Noyes Westcott.
