Deadlock (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Deadlock It is, I suppose, incontestable that Miss Richard son's own six volumes are so written as to facilitate precisely that sort of apprehension by her readers. The leverage which she wishes to exert upon them is that of the unique personality intimately grasped, with out reference to such irrelevant affairs as literary forms or formulae, tendencies, philosophies, schools, aesthetic canons and traditions. In short, what she is trying to communicate is the most desperately generous of all gifts - the gift of herself. That is why, I sus peet, she would be indifferent to any attempt to esti mate her bearings on the contemporary fictional scene as a whole. The effort to place her, she would almost necessarily construe as an effort to dispose of her altogether, and on the cheapest terms to reject her on the one ground on which she offers herself, while accepting her on grounds wholly foreign to her mind and purpose. The logical outcome of any such process she would doubtless see as an identification of her des tiny with that of the forlorn classics by which we are all influenced, whether we have read them or not. She might even add that to be imitated is the last unbearable evidence of failure, since the sole accom plishment to which she has ever aspired is one which must remain inimitable.
