Excerpt from Great Authors in Their Youth This is a book of beginnings, since it tells of the early life of some great authors. Yet it is the beginning that counts, says the French proverb. In these records of youthful days we come closer to the things that make one life different from another; we watch the troubles and triumphs of childhood that teach one novelist the story of David Copperfield's varied fortunes and another the strange eventful history of Jane Eyre; we wander with one young poet through the quiet country of 'The Brook," and with another boyish lover of romance over the rugged hillsides of the land of "Marmion." The stored-up memories of their early years have always been the true treasure-house of great authors, and to know the story of their youth is to have the key to an enchanted door. In gathering together whatever has gone to the making of this book of youthful lives for youthful readers the writer has gleaned in many fields.

The author of these sketches desires to say that they were written, not for the special student of literary biography, who is already familiar with the facts here given, but rather for those busy people who have little time for reading, yet wish to know something of the private life and personal history of their favorite authors. The sketches are not intended to be critical, or to present anything like complete biographies. They are devoted chiefly to the home life of the various authors,—which, though an instructive and fascinating study, seems commonly neglected in popular biographies. It should be added that a few of these sketches have already appeared in print, but they have been rewritten to adapt them to their present purpose. H. T. G. Columbus, Wis., October, 1886.
