Sherwood Anderson Correspondence with Llewellyn Jones, 1916-1924, n.d. (Ms2015-044)

Transcription

 

Dear Jones—I do sincerely appre–

ciate your very thoughtful and

interesting handling of my new

book. For some reason the book

seems to have led most of

the critics to spout and I have

seen, for the most part, not

intelligent criticism but long

dissertations on someone's notion

of labor, writing, or intellectuality.

In short my plea for less

empty talk has apparently set

everyone talking.

And, in the midst of much

of this, when you come along

and talk sense, giving a clear

definition of the limitations

of the book, it does my

heart good. Thank you

again old man.

Sherwood Anderson
