voted to that subject is not so large as that of other South-
ern States. It has been said: "The fame of a great man
needs time to give it perspective/ This is essentially true
of authors, and it remains for the future biographer, after
time has done its work in giving due perspective to the
great minds of our state, to do justice to the merits and
work of Tennessee's eminent literary laborers. Notes

Notes on State Literature.

The early writings of Tennessee were of an histor-
ical, biographical or religious character. Some early his-
torians are: Judge John Haywood, Dr. J. M. M. Ram-
sey, and A. Waldo Putnam. Miss Mary M. Murfree,
whose pseudonym is Charles Egbert Craddock, was one
of the best known of Tennessean women writers, of whom
it is said that her first publication entitled her to the front
rank among novelists. Mrs. L. Virginia French was a
literary worker and a poet of ability. Notes from "His-
tory of Tennessee."

Treatment of the State in American Literature.

"The freshness, joy, and insouciance of the body of

bearing enthusiastic testimony to the worth and interest
of the literary output of Texas in the present time."
David Fonte Eagleton.

Notes on State Literature.

The literary history of Texas may be divided ac-
cording to very irregular lines of social life thus: the times
of the pioneer, a period of exploration and settlement to
1836; a formative or constructive period to 1869; and an
industrial and cultural period to the present. The lit-
erature of Texas has always been a reflection of the life
of the people and is unique in that it has never had an in-
fantile period. There are six hundred writers, either
living within the state or writing about it. Sam Houston,
David Crockett, Mrs. Ray, and Mrs. Rally were some
very early Texas writers. Augusta Evans, Amelia Barr,
Capt. Mayne Reid, Sidney Laniei, Opie Reed, Octave
Thanet, and Harry Flash are among those who have vis-
ited Texas and have written of it. Notes from "Writers
and Writings of Texas."

Notes on State Literature.

In Utah we come upon a series of interesting social

the founding of a new religion. Mormonism has given
a peculiar touch to much of her literature. In early
history we have the fables of the Baron la Houtan, writ-
ten in 1869, to which some refer for the first information
of the Great Salt Lake. Susa Young Gates is probably
the best known Utahian author. Notes from "Journal
of History" a quarterly publication in Iowa on Mormon-
ism, 1910.

Notes on State Literature.

Early literature in Virginia was influenced by her
aristocratic population. The negro had his place in Vir-
ginian literature. The poetical beginnings in the early
colonial period began in translations. "Hearts of Oak,"
written by David Garrick in 1766, was the first literary
work of importance composed in America. During the
Revolutionary Period her literature was mostly a war
literature and many of her authors were soldiers. The
novels of the period before the Civil War were historical
narratives that hardly ever had any critical spirit. Dur-
ing the Ante-bellum Period political aggressiveness and
sectional pride can be seen in her literature. Notes from
Histories of American Literature.
