Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Short studies of American authors, Hawthorne. (search)
Hawthorne. I do not know when I have been more surprised than on being asked, the other day, the neighbors as the Prince. When I passed, Hawthorne lifted upon me his great gray eyes, with a l he found an eagle's feather. Again I met Hawthorne at one of the sessions of a short-lived liteer on the surface, and could be no model for Hawthorne's. Yet from the time when the latter began tthe very highest types of artist. Through Hawthorne's journals we trace the mental impulses by wo it is in reading Septimius Felton. In all Hawthorne's completed works, the pencilling is rubbed peared.

Yet it is impossible to deny that he has suffered from this very profusion. Much of his early work seems a sort of self-training, gained at the expense of his readers; each sheet, each story, has been hurried into print before the ink was dry, in order to test it on the public,--a method singularly removed from the long and lonely maturing of Hawthorne. L'oisivete est necessaire aux esprits, aussi bien que le travail. Even the later books of Mr. James, especially his travels and his essays, show something of this defect.
