Lessing’s interests and activities were of the most diverse character. He remains unsurpassed in his versatility. He is that rare literary figure, the jack-of-all-trades and master of all. The extraordinary breadth of the field which he covered is in part responsible for the enormous influence he exercised on the literature of his age.
