Examples

  • No other living American writer — not the fancily overwriting Bellow, with his demented epistoler anti-hero Herzog; not Updike, with his family of Rabbits and their hick everyman musings; not Don DeLillo, with his cast of paranoids — has created characters quite as memorable or as alive as Nathan Zuckerman and David Kepesh, or endowed the modern novel with such philosophical urgency, making us think that fiction still matters.

    The Nihilist

  • His father had died in 1842, but the son served a short apprenticeship to school-teaching at Rugby, then became private secretary to Lord Lansdowne, the President of the Council (it is now that we first meet him as an epistoler), and early in 1851 was appointed by his chief to an inspectorship of schools.

    Matthew Arnold

  • Arnold as an epistoler than the _Letters_ at large seem to have given.
