SOMETHING ABOUT MODERN WRITERS. [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 26 December 1891

SbMETniNC AbOUT MODtRN WRITERS. Howells, recognised as the coming American novelist, is a warm sympathiser with the Labour movement and a bitter assailant .of modern Capitalism. He was born poor and remembers it. Ostragofp, a Nihilist exile in Siberia, wrote this. Druitri, a since-hanged Nihilist, translated it : — Praise Him beneath the dim starlight, ? The eunny bright sky or the cloud, _ And build of your bricks and your mortar Houses to shelter the crowd. I know not your Maker as you do, But I'll lay to your rouble a score, That would please him a great deal better Than should you with psalms Him bore. And it's the true religion whoever wrote it. Dopont White, a French contemporary of Marx, is asserted by his countrymen Laveieye to he the founder of State Socialism ? and to have developed the idea in 1846, years before Marx published his ' Capital.' Mark Twain sympathises strongly with the Labour movement. Allan Eastman Cboss wasn't writing about Queen-street basements when he w...
