ERNEST TEMPLE THURSTON
The author compares displeasing literary phrases to "an unpleasant scent or an ugly clash of colours".
Typed Letter signed: "E. Temple Thurston", 1 page, 4½x7¾. Goddards Green, Cranbrook, Kent [UK], 1922 July 26. To "Dear Sir", in full: "I am very busy at the moment or I should be pleased to answer your letter with the information you require. Of course, every author has his terminological hatreds, though he probably does not know what they are until he meets them in print. Words and phrases certainly have the effect of 'turning me up' like an unpleasant scent or an ugly clash of colours, so much so that I find I do not have to adopt - as you suggest - a literary device to escape them. Yours faithfully". English poet, playwright and novelist Ernest Temple Thurston (1879-1933) wrote 40 books, 17 of which were made into films; and several plays, three performed on Broadway and 4 made into films. His best known novel, The City of Beautiful Nonsense (1909), was made into two films (silent and sound). His best known play, The Wandering Jew (1921), also spawned silent and talking movies. Normal mailing fold. Lightly worn. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
