City Festivals free pdf Excerpt from City Festivals In this sixth and last book of the Farm and City Series, it may be appropriate for its author to mention the plan and theory which he has endeavored to make his guide throughout the work. He believes, first, that the most important consideration of a book or a poem, so far as it is within the author's control, is the motive- which should be connected either with the substantial improvement, or the rational entertainment of the human race. The author who has the attention of any great number of people, and does not use it to make them better and truer, is to be pitied, as well as his readers. Second, he believes that the next most important thing in a book or poem, is its spirit and feeling - the servant of the motive. This should be hearty, deep, and sincere. Whatever the feeling which the author strives to express, be must first experience himself, in order to communicate it to his readers. No writer can touch the heart of his audience, unless his own heart has first been touched. The only sure way to the brain is through the heart. Millions of volumes are to-day finger-deep in the dust of library-cemeteries, because their makers did not write them with their hearts - did not really mean what they said. And the public felt the lack, knew them for something it did not wish, and neglected them. Third, he believes that the next most important consideration in a book or a poem is the subject-matter - the thought, the material - servant of the motive and feeling. This should never be above the comprehension of the average mind and thought of the world - if the author expects to write for the people in general, and not for the short-lived praises of a small, transient, artificial admiration-society. There is no thought so great, so complicated, so ineffably sublime, that it cannot be resolved into elements easily understood by the average human intellect. It should be the work of a poet, not to make plain thought or lack of thought complex and difficult of being understood, but to simplify and interpret nature and art to his readers- not to produce a series of rhymed riddles and enigmas, but epics, dramas, or lyrics such as the human race can understand, enjoy, and use, for their entertainment and instruction. Fourth, the language of a book or poem - servant of the motive, thought, and feeling - should not be stilted or strained.
