The Interdependence of Literature
by Curtis, Georgina Pell


"There is first, the literature of knowledge, and secondly the literature of power. The function of the first is to teach, the function or the second is to move; the first is a rudder, the second an oar or a sail. The first speaks to the mere discursive understanding, the second speaks ultimately, it may happen, to the higher understanding or reason, but always through affections of pleasure and sympathy."

Thomas De Quincey "Essays on the Poets." (Alexander Pope.)



B. Herder,
17 South Broadway, St. Louis, Mo.
and 68 Great Russell St., London, W.C.

1917
