The Friends of Voltaire.

The Friends of Voltaire, written by Evelyn Beatrice Hall under the pseudonym S. Tallentyre, was published in 1906. In 1907 it was published in Great Britain under the author's own name by G. P. Putnam's Sons. This classic work about Voltaire was still being printed nearly 100 years later in 2003. The book is in the form of an anecdotal biography telling the stories of ten men whose lives fell very closely together.

Evelyn Beatrice Hall (28 September 1868 – 13 April 1956), who wrote under the pseudonym S. Tallentyre, was an English writer best known for her biography of Voltaire entitled The Life of Voltaire, first published in 1903. She also wrote The Friends of Voltaire, which she completed in 1906.

Biography and Autobiography. Plenty of sound common-sense, liberal, practical, hospitable; just enough taste for literature to enjoy a doze, over a book in the evening when his day's labour was done eminently respected and respectable decently acquiescing in. The Life of Voltaireby S. The national religion as such, and with no particular faith in anything but hard work and monetary prudence not a little hasty in temper and deadly obstinate - such was Maitre Arouet.

The two representative Frenchmen of the eighteenth century are Voltaire and Mirabeau. Voltaire was the last great influence of the old order, and Mirabeau the first of the new. Voltaire, more than any other one man, undammed the torrent of Revolution. Mirabeau used all the strength of his mighty genius to turn those rushing waters into the channel of use, of wisdom, and of safety. These two notable men have inspired the present biographer, who has the distinction of having written what may be regarded as the definitive life of each. The Life of Voltaire is, like The Life of Mirabeau, a penetrating study of character combined with a dramatic conception of Voltaire's role in history. S. G. Tallentyre is also the author of The Life of Mirabeau and The Friends of Voltaire.
