Abstract

At one time, the only articles indispensable to the young man embarking upon a literary career, apart from a rich wife or a private income, were a sheaf of paper, a pen, a bottle of ink and a large wastepaper basket. Talent and an infinite amount of patience were also useful. Your modern writer, however, is entirely lost without a complete library of books written with the sole aim of teaching him how to write. Here by his side is a philanthropist who provides him with plots for stories, there a literary Autolycus with a fund of apposite quotations on every subject in between them textbooks dealing with every possible aspect of writing andwhat is more importantof marketing the fruits of his genius.
