He produced works of Art and wrote in many forms, including essays, treatises, poetry, lectures, travel guides and manuals, personal letters and at least one published fairy tale ["The King of the Golden River or The Black Brothers: A Legend of Stiria", a 1841 fantasy tale that he wrote for his then-future wife (who later had their unconsummated marriage annulled and then married John Everett Millais].
