Young People's Story of American Literature

Excerpt from Young People's Story of American Literature: Revised Edition Now, in 1922, a new edition of "Young People's Story of American Literature" is issued. What a wonderful broadening of vision since the beginning of our colonial period over three hundred years ago! To-day there is more thoughtful and artistic authorship than ever before. Essayist and dramatist, biographer and historian, scientist and philosopher, novelist and poet, are writing; the illustrator is busy with brush and camera - and everybody reads. The demand is great and our literature is worthy of consideration. Let us study its trend from the characteristics of a few representative authors, for it is better to be familiar with the work of a few rather than to have scant acquaintance with that of the many. Which are the best we may not know, for it is never possible to give correct perspective of contemporary writers. Keenest critics fail in judgment of their own age. Amy Lowell says: "To-day can never be adequately expressed largely because we are a part of it and only a part"; while John Jay Chapman thus voices his views: "A historian cannot get his mind into focus upon anything as near as the present."
