    Rationing and the forced Remy de Gourmont began as the war turned against the British. Artists, novelists, poets, journalists, occultists, abnormalists, essayists, scientists and even theologians, are treated with that humorous and passionate curiosity, full of a spacious sense of the amplitude of and diversity of life's possibilities, which we associate with the classic tradition. A pleasure of reading Davenport is his compression of any given matrix of affinities—the whole lit-crit trainspotting of influences on and influences of—into striking little scenes like that of Degas staying up all night with the Zoopraxia. And Simone likewise shall receive her answer, as we all - whether we be descendants of the Puritans, crossing Boston Common, or aliens of the sweatshops of New York.

    Dutton, Pilgrim moving, aloof from the clamours of men, from garden to garden of melancholy and sweet a modern man of letters book pilgrim passing night by night among moonlit parterres of impossible roses; pilgrim seeking "wild sea-banks" where strange-leaved glaucous plants whisper their secrets to the sharp salt wind; pilgrim of silence, for whom the gentlest murmur of the troubled senses of feverish humanity has its absorbing interest, every quiver of those burning eyelids its secret intimation, every sigh of that tremulous breast its burden of delicate confession; pilgrim of silence moving aloof from the howls of the mob and the raucous voices of the preachers, moving from garden to garden, from seashore to seashore; cannot even you - oh pilgrim of the long, long quest - give us the word, the clue, the signal, that shall answer the riddle of our days, and make the twilight of our destiny roll back? Heinemann [c]. It's easy to get carried away with all the extras and try to cram everything in, but remember: You'll be back!

    Such disinterestedness brings its own reward. But this new tyranny, this new oppression of letters, this unfortunate cult of the susceptible "young person", is far more deadly to the interests of civilisation than any interference by church or state. In spite of having a profound influence on English and American writers, in his own country Gourmont did not have a similar stature. More than any critic that ever lived, Remy de Gourmont has the power of interesting us in his psychological discoveries with that sort of thrilling vibrating interest which is almost like a physical touch. Cordell D.

There is a fashionable suggestion a modern man of letters book perversion in the friendship of his two heroines, which is carried beyond the stage of suggestion in the affair of Claude and the model.

Like Goethe, he considers the intellectual freedom of the artist and philosopher best secured under a government that is stable and lasting; better still under a government that confines itself rigidly to its own sphere and leaves manners and morals to the taste of the individual; best of all under that Utopian absence of any government, whether of the many or of the few, whereof all free spirits dream.

Poetry makes us see the world in the literal sense, not just realize. One hears so often from the mouths of middle-class apologists for the modern industrial system expressions of fear as to the loss of what they call "initiative" under any conceivable socialistic state.

Their sporadic meetings were emotionally wrenching and the couple could make no plans for their future together. The movement was heavily inspired by Japanese and classical European art. After this point he became known as a critic and biographer.

As Mr Parker truly observes, the essence of de Gourmont's genius is to be found in an insatiable curiosity which the absolute closing of any vista of knowledge by the final and authoritative discovery of truth would paralyse and petrify. They come when we have ceased to care whether they come or not.

The whole philosophical attitude of Remy de Gourmont is full of interest and significance for those who are watching the deeper movements of European thought. The ardour of his intellectual curiosity burns with a clear smokeless flame. He was himself too entirely intellectual, too high and icy and austere and imaginative ever to bring the actual feet of the dancers, and the lutes and flutes of the wanton singers into the sunlit path to which he pointed the way.
