Address nrjlr. Julian lliiwtliorne on "The
Theory unit l'rnctlcuortlio Novelist."
Mr. Julian Hawthorne spoke to the fol-
lowing effect at a recent meeting of the Nine
teenth Century club In New York.
Novels arc the only bonks that are read
from no selfish motive and they are the only
true books these "works of hclion be-
cause they tell the vicissitudes of that only
great conservative the human heart.
Shakipeare is fresh to-day though Bacon Is
left behind. Man against fate was the classic
pagan situation. Right against wrong the
predicament of the Christian era. In our
modern school of fiction the conflict peihaps
lies between culture and provincialism with
the author on the side of culture. If the art
of fiction be not a finer art in our day than at a
former perj0(J it is at all events a more near
. r iw i i i i i
siuhted one. We look more closely at people i
into tlitm. Until quite recently the plot re-j

cetved more elaboration- than the people as il
In mnn utrrn In lir alisnrlirn Inl.-i his nan
ke!e. Now some of our best writers in
their anxiety to plot too much almost cease to
have any plot at all. Such a book though
fui 0f art on every pagei may fail entirely to
be a work of art. The true alternative lrom
too much plot is not to no plot but to a plot
of a higher and more interior kind. Take a
number of characters and bring them to bear
upon one another until an equihbriuir is at-
tamed and you will find events occurring on
e inner plane of thought and emotion which
are not only of supremis interest intrinsically
but which apprise us mat all external incident
is but a rellection as a consequence oi tne
I nermanent will be its imoression on the
rcajer j.-or the outward memory of -eye and
ear s ess retentive than that of the emotions
! As regards characters you may have noticed
0 late a certain timidity about usinc tne old'
fashioned heroes and heroines. They' are
considered not good lorm too demonstra-
tive! Desides art must draw from nature
and where nre the heroes and heroines of our
own little social circle for example ? There-
fore il is thought we should put Into our
stories such commonplace and familiar figures
as we are forever stumbling over in the hotels
and at our friends' houses and make up for
the unpretentiousness of our material by the
brilliancy with which we describe and dissect
it. The reader moreover will be more edified
and convinced by a lesson brought down to
the level of his daily experience than by lofty
oracles from the clouds.
This argument Is plausible but does it not
forget the fact that every human being no
matter how mean and frail his uninspired per-
sonal quality may at need draw inimitably
upon that vast ocean of human niture which
flows beneath us and within us all t What we
call great men the heroes of history are only
the orcans or instruments of creat opportuni
ties and as Emerson says they are the most
"indebted men." They are not creat in
themselves. There is no ratio between their
achievements and them. Our judgment is
misled; we .do not discriminate between the
means and the cause and effect. We need
acters be no matter what exalted gifts the
novelist may ascribe to them. When our
civil wa' broke out. society certainly showed
no more noble lineaments than it does now.
and yet before we had fought a year we had
heroes by the thousand anu as many great
men as we needed. Human nature is alwav

ness to keep the ideal before us and to
use the nonentity only as a ion ana a nega
And this suggests the question " How did
this fanaticism oi realism come aoouw " it
was oricinallv. no doubt a reaction 'from life
less sentiment and morbid humbug which
had come down to us from an ill-educated
and artificial past llut the indignant literal
' ists who expo'sedand ridiculed ft. artificiality
allowed their enthustasm to carry them too
far Not nli sentiment Is vapid nor is all
fiuraivenes false Tllere is a' CUS8 of rain(is
unction of id . aliim ami harmony In defiance
oi the evtdence of palpable facts about us
must be wrong. Hence the celebration oi
discords which is called literalism. Now so
far as this promotes sincerity and simplicity
in art it is commendable and literalism is
one of the favorite utensils of comic writers
and satirists. Dul the acuteness of satirists ij
not always batanccd bv their taste. They do
not know when to stoti. Hnvinc established a
reputation fo' calling a spade a spade they try
to maintain it bv canine a carved comet uy
Cellini a pewter mug. The ridicule of what is
ridiculous developing by natural selection
Into ridicule of what Is not ridiculous and
culminating in ridicule for ridicule's sake has
resulted not so mucn in pruning loiiy wmcn
we have always with us no matter what we
do as in stunting and chopping down the
wholesome snu spontantous growth ul beauty
and inspiration. Writers of cenlus and refine
ment arc getting to be afraid to say their souls
are their own or to "let on" that they have
any souls at all. They might be accused of
"line leehngs or "sentimentality. iney be
pin to distrust the cenerous clow that accom
nanics free and penial enmnosttion. With
the sensitiveness Inseparable from the artistic
temperament llirv shrink back in a studied
self-conscious altitude address us in graceful
and fastidious but frigid phrases and cultivate
the air of having divorced thrmselves Irom all
sympathy with their own stories.
Now it may be a question whether an
autnor snnuiu gossip about nis nramaus per-
sona: as freely as Fleldinc and Thackeray do
but be that as it may a worse peril lurks on
the other side. For. lo make the "comment"
in a novel colorless or critical is not the same
thing as to have no comment at all. Instead
of permitting: emotion or sentiment of th
scene to have its unbiased effect a discord is
constantly obtruded between the positive lines
of the story and the neutral tint of the re-
marks and the writer instead of rendering
himsell invisible becomes inveterately con'
spicuous. The writer who truly forgets h'm
self and so leads his reader to forget him i
the writer who so sensitively attunes himself
to the dominant chord ol bis story that
though the sense of his words be taken his
voice is not heard. Moreover the writer
lack of sympathy with his characters com
municates itself not to the reader alone but to
the characters themselves and they also be
pin to pick their way fastidiously through th-.i
language and to behave with well-bred self-
restraint. Reserve is admirable but it
hardly creative. There is no reierve about
the bursting into leaf and bloom of the seed
plant in the ground.
Rev. Mr. Cook thinks the American press
elves toy little space to the discussion of the
news which it shows so much enterprise in
