BOOKS AND THE BOOK WORLD IN TIMELY REVIEW
Cured "Sweet Marie"
Goldman and Berkman Didn't Ring
True, and War Taught- Her
Love of Country
B7 JOHN SPARGO.
THE literature of recantation -nd
apostasy has always excited tar
ropucnance. While autobiography fre
quently attalna to the very hUhest levels
of literature, this branch alnka to Its
lorit depth! Tbo "confessions" of ea
prlests, reformed monk, converted So
cialists, redeemed and re.enerated rebels
and reformers of all kin ! commonly
teem Itb malice and misrepresentation,
eant and cowardice. ThU may b due
to tiie- corruptlrc Influence of com
tnerdalUra; certainty there seems to be
no rood rearoo why the experlescea of
a treat intellectual or spiritual resolu
tion, a "conversion" la the tanruase'of
evangelism, should not be set forth In
manner helpful to others and la a
. generous spirit. A few bare done this
and thereby enriched literature.
If Marie Ganz, In this autobiographi
cal fragment, which recounts her asso
ciation with the anarchist propaganda,
has not attained any. (Teat height,
neither has she fallen to the lerel of so
many who have cone before hep "Into
anarchy and out atatn" Her story, pre
pared with the assistance of a trained
.literary collaborator, la refreshingly free
from the cant of self.rlchteousness on
tht one hand and the hypocritical pose
of unbearable remorse and ahime on the
other. Her modesty Is refreshing She
has only a very simple story to tell, but
she tells It simply and nerervonce in
dulges In sensational "revelations,' or
(what Is worse) hints at dark secrets.
There Is no denunciation of her former
comrades. She Is Indeed severely critical
of two of them Emma Goldman and
Alexander Berkman but whether, the
criticism Is sound or unsound It does
cot pass the boundaries of rood taste.

Hugh Walpole recently wrote of Francis Brett Young as "the man who
is, I think, among the more romantic younger English novelists, easily
the first. . I am tempted to say that he writes better English
prose than any living English novelist save only Conrad. Whether
that is true or no, his work b of very real importance and not to bo
missed by any student of the English novel."
