LITERATURE OF THE
SOUTH WAS THEME.
President Snyder ef WoIFord College
Hero on tho Iuvitation of (ho
Proaidont Snyder of WolTord Col
logo lectured Friday evening in the
city school chap 1 on Southern Litera
ture, at the invitation of the Wednes
day Olub, Ladies.
Dr. Snyder recognized,tho fact that
tho South has not produced a ^litera
ture" in the word's full moaning. He
spoko of tho efforts and aspirations of
writers having taken their direction
from tho social and political conditions,
of which the characteristics mo?t dis
tinctive were plantation lifo and.tho in
terlocked Ideas of state's rights and
African slavery. The South's real in
tellectual achievement is to bo found in
tho sphere of state-craft and until tho
war \ he endeavors towards literary
dUtino'lon were socondary.
The address was scholarly and show
ed a lively familiarity with the theme.
The speaker has an easy, graceful and
finished platform style and tho interest
and attention of his auditors were hold.
In closing Dr. Snyder alluded to somo
of tho later writers who have in re
cent yoars won at least a present voguo
in reading circles.} While the lecturer's
statement that the South has not yet
had a true "litoraturo" is accurate,
the question arises: Does not the South
produce more than its share of contem
porary fiction and other writing when
the sparsity of its population, povorty
of its schools and colleges and thinness
of its reading public arc considered? In
other words, is it not almost remarka
ble that so many like Page, Craddock,
Harris, Allen and lessor lights innum
erable of the rank of Miss Johnson, Jno
Fox, II. S. Edward and Miss Glasgow
have been able to get tho eye of the
whole American reading public? The
notable fact to The Advertiser is that
the output of Southern pens seems to
be in such demand throughout tho
country. While its own reading pub
lic is relatively email, Its writers meet
those of the North on equal terras in
their own territory. The explanation
is doubtless that the South before the
whole world is a thome of romantic
and literary interest and that the rich
mines from which they draw aro tho
sources of any extraordinary popular
ity that Southern story tollers may
have. This explanation was hinted by
Dr. Snyder when he alluded to the
part of the South in tho Civil War.
By the way, Dr. Snyder did not mon
tion the unpalatable truth that while
the South toems with clever story
writers,' none has come from South
Carl'na, since, perhaps, William Gll
moro Sims. No* one South Carolina
writer of fiction or poetry has won a
reputation in late years, so far as we
recall. It is rather puzzling that for a
third of a century South Carolina has
been relatively so barren of litoi'ary
production. Tho lamented Coogler
warbled a solemn fact about his state:
1 Sho never was given to literature.''
