Holmes literary career began in 1857 with "The Autocrat At The Breakfast Table," a series of talks published in the first numbers of the Atlantic Monthly. This was followed by the series "The Professor At The Breakfast Table" in 1860 and "The Poet At The Breakfast Table" in 1872. His novels "Elsie Venner" in 1861, "The Guardian Angel" in 1867, and "A Mortal Antipathy" were not successful, but have been called the first American psychological novels. Oliver Wendell Holmes died in 1894.
