WRITERS AND WRITINGS. LITERARY NOTES AND VERSES. MEN OF LETTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 February 1914
WRITERS AND WRITINGS. LITERARY NOTES AND VERSES. MEN OF LETTERS. Of human notabilities men of letters are the most interesting, and this arises mainly from their out spokenness as a class. The writer makes himself known in a way no other man makes himself known. The distinguished engineer may be as great a man as the distinguished writer, but as a rule we know little about him. Doubtless he reveals himself in his work as the poet reveals himself in his song, but then this revelation is made in a tongue unknown to the majority. After all, we do not feel that we get near him. The man of letters, on the other hand, is outspoken; he takes you into his confidence; he keeps no secret from you. Be you beggar, be you king, you are welcome. He is no respecter of persons. He gives without reserve his fancies, his wit, his wisdom ; he mak3s you a present of all the painful or happy years have brought him. The writer makes his reader heir in full. Men of letters are a peculiar class. They are a...
