Excerpt from Studies in Modern German Literature Sudermann Hauptmann: Women Writers of the Nineteenth Century The reader of these studies will be likely to feel a certain disappointment at finding them distinctly unscholastic in form as well as in substance. Yet a frank declaration of the author's aim may vindicate him in the judgment even of those who have themselves dealt with similar subjects in a more academic fashion. His cardinal purpose has been to draw attention afresh to a phase of contemporary culture thus far not sufficiently heeded by the English speaking world. He has written with the hope of cooperating, in however modest a measure, with abler and better known writers who are striving to bring the German and the American into more genuine sympathy with each other. The usual way of revealing the spirit and temper of a people through their literature is by an interpretative survey of the entire output. This course, if applied to modern literatures, involves the application of historical method to present-day things and persons. Many critics have deemed their powers adequate to grapple with such an enormous difficulty. But although they have had the advantage of an already well-informed reading public, their performances, as a rule, have fallen so far short of their aims that a less self-assured reviewer shrinks from the undertaking.
