Excerpt from Six Famous Living Poets: Introductory Studies, Illustrated By, Quotation and Comment

Dear Miss Klickmann,

You bade me pen these appreciations, and you read each as written. When you thought I had done well, you said so more than generously, thereby heartening me, in later chapters, to do my best. When you thought I had done less well, or ill, you said so as frankly, thereby inducing me to strike out what was worst. As to you I owe not only the book's inception, but much invaluable criticism, will you accept the Dedication? If any chapter, or section of a chapter gave you, in the reading, half as much pleasure as I found in "The Flower-Patch among the Hills," "Between the Larch Woods and the Weir," and "The Trail of the Ragged Robin," I am content.

As you can confirm what I say, may I add - though for other eyes than yours - that "criticism," in any scholarly or academic sense, these articles never set out to be. They are no more than Introductory Studies for the general reader, and penned, admittedly, from a personal standpoint. Rambling, discursive and gossipy as they are, my hope is that they are not altogether without freshness of outlook and illustration; for though I confess to taking pleasure only in appreciation, and none in depreciation, I have not for that reason refrained from indicating what seems to me - wrongly perhaps, but at least sincerely and outspokenly - an occasional defect or weakness in the poems under consideration. But the intention of the book is to set the work of each poet in so attractive a light as to send my readers to study for themselves all that he has written.

Were it not so, I should not have ventured to ask permission to quote so widely.
