Trend of Literature LIST was compiled the other day of the best sellers of the last thirty years. It reveals much about the trend of 'erjcan life. Back in 1902; "Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch" was a Veil known literary figure. She lived in a simple, homely Stery. There was somehting refreshing about her. And when "The Little Shepherd of Kingdom"€ome" left home in 1904 wi|h only his dog to trail him across the mountains he had a \yet-eyed audience. That same tearful influence went along t}f|~ trail of the Lonesome Pine when June went back to remember her lost romance. It predominated when Garth went bjlmiin "The Rosary." & Books were simple. They dealt with emotions that hadn't acquired a veneer of sophistication. Life wasn't com- in those tales. For the most part books were erected on an<J sacrifice and honor. If an author could make his w«ep he had done much. * But another influence crept in just before 1915. Industry was growing larger. It was fast becoming a predominating force in American social life. And since literature fol- life, it became the skeleton for fiction plots as well. Booth Tarkington used it in "The Turmoil." Smiky skies Aoierjeaa cities were #s interesting as the drama of love which two young .people fought on a more or less in- J basis, • * But "Seventeen" was a return to pure, unalloyed enjoy- &f the wistfulness that goes with youth. It was life it- unhampered by outside restriction. Life at 17. And was lovely. And then suddenly lietrature wasn't afraid to look at the hidden side of life. It decided not only to talk about the things that people do, and their consequences, but to give the reasons for the actions. It grew introspective. It criticized when it felt like it. It caricatured. Instead of telling a story about a certain group of people It ejtose eross-HBections of life itself. It had a lesson to teach. Mary "Main Street/' "Elmer Gantry," "If Winter Comes," "So Bib" .... the list began to look as though the authors were livingrly intensively as well as extensively. Best sellers |jad outgrown tbelr growing pains. They weren't afraid to about the symptoms of life. And Uteifcture* while it way not be as (juietly enjoyable, e0nsid.erifejy fflPfe i«*fer«£tive.
