Literary Note from The Century Oo.
Sir Walter iieaant begins in the De
cember Century a series of papers il
lustrating life in EaBt London, as it is
to-day. His manner of treating tbe
subject is that of the novelist, rather
than the essayest, for he takes as his
point of departure the birth of a typical
Kirl of the east end—"One of Two Mil
lions in East London,"—and traces her
career to the time of her marriage at
seventeen to a young countryman who
haB come up to town to make his living
as a porter. Liz is a "Board school"
girl, and Sir Walter holds that what the
average East Londoner learns from
books at school he afterwards forgets
but that the civilizing influence or the
schools is incalculable, and has marvel
lously transformed the East End within
the past thirty years. No one knows
more of tbe life of the poor in London
than the author of "All Sorts and Con
ditions of Men and no one Ib better
known as their pictorial interpreter
than Phil May, who collaborates with
Joseph I'ennell in illustrating Sir Wal
ter's article.
