EMERSON'S PROSE STYLE.
Held to Be Ucklnv In the Quality
of Writer Called Mater.
What shall be said of Emerson's
prose? Was Matthew Arnold right
when, as an experienced critic calmly
judging the favorite author of his
youth, he denied thut the "Essays,"
the lectures and '"English Traits" form
ed a body of prose of sufficient jnerlt
to. entitle Emerson to be ranked as a
great man of letters? It seems as if
the time had come for Emerson's coun
trymen frankly to accept this verdict.
Because of deficiencies, both of style
and of romance, Emerson does not
belong to the small class of the great
masters of prose. His style, despite
the-fact that "Nature" and many of
the essays contain pages of eloquent
prose almost equal in power and Ivonu-
ty to noblo poetry, was nearly alwuys
that of the lecturer or preacher rather
than that of the writer. He too fre
quently lost the note Wf distinction nud
was content if ho satisfied his far from
exigent audiences. In diction, to Ik
sure, he was a conscious and consum
mate master, and it need scarcely be
said that few writers have surpassed
him In the ability to compose a preg
nant sentence. Hnt, as is generally ad
mitted and as is shown by his prac
tice of piecing his notes together, ho
was rarely able to evolve a paragraph,
much more a whole essay. In a mas
terly or even In a workmanlike fashion.
It may be granted that critics have
overemphasized his lack of coherence,
that there is more logical unity in his
essnys than appears on first reading,
that "English Traits" and the later
volumes are far from being mere
strings of "orphic sayings," but the
fact seems to remain that the prose
style of Emerson from llrst to last
lacks the firmness, the compass, the
precision, the flexibility, the Individ
uality we demand of the prose writers
whom we denominate masters. Pro
