A Story-Teller's Holiday free pdf Excerpt from A Story-Teller's Holiday A Leave-Taking this certainly is of a great many readers, but I have faith in the good sense of all my readers, for they are not a heterogeneous crowd, but a family, and every one of the family knows how steadfast the persecution of my writings has been since the publication, forty years ago, of a little volume of poems entitled Flowers of Passion. As I write I can hear a reader saying to himself as he paces his room: it is not two years since somebody submitted to the Court at Bow Street that The Brook Kerith should be interdicted but the magistrate refused to issue a warrant- and last November in the Law Courts the jury, after having listened a whole day to a libel action, returned a verdict of no libel and no damages. But the fact that the magistrate refused to grant a warrant and the jury to convict is not sufficient compensation for the proffered insults, and our author has done well to retire into a literary arcanum where he will be able to practise his art in dignified privacy. Another reader crosses his legs and meditates: George Moore was never welcome in Grub Street for he wished to write for men and women of letters, and this class is not recognised by the libraries as readers of books- strange that it should be so, but it is so, for whilst there are books for astronomers, for scientists, for doctors, for lawyers, for golfers, for cricketers, for chess players, for yachtsmen, and as for young girls in their teens, voluminous literature awaits them every year, there are no books written for men and women of letters exclusively. By private printing our author has cut himself off from many readers, but the alternative was for him to cease writing.
