von Holst, occupies its important place in American history because of its relation to westward expansion. In this advance, the frontier is the outer edge of the wave—the meeting point between savagery and civilization.

Much has been written about the frontier from the point of view of border warfare and the chase, but as a field for the serious study of the economist and the historian it has been neglected.

The American frontier is sharply distinguished from the European frontier—a fortified boundary line running through dense populations. The most significant thing about the American frontier is, that it lies at the hither edge of free land. In the census reports it is treated as the margin of that settlement which has a density of two or more to the square mile.

The term is an elastic one, and for our purposes does not need sharp definition. This paper will make no attempt to treat the subject exhaustively; its aim is simply to call attention to the frontier as a fertile field for investigation, and to suggest some of the problems which arise in connection with it.

In the settlement of America we have to observe how European life entered the continent, and how America modified and developed that life and reacted on Europe. Our early history is the study of European germs developing in an American environment. Too exclusive attention has been paid by institutional students to the Germanic origins, too little to the American factors.

The frontier is the line of most rapid and effective Americanization. The wilderness masters the colonist. It finds him a European in dress, industries, tools, modes of travel, and thought. It takes him from the railroad car and puts him in the birch canoe.

It strips off the garments of civilization and arrays him in the hunting shirt and the moccasin. It puts him in the log cabin of the Cherokee and Iroquois and runs an Indian palisade around him. Before long he has gone to planting Indian corn and plowing with a sharp stick; he shouts the war cry and takes the scalp in orthodox Indian fashion.

In short, at the frontier the environment is at first too strong for the man. He must accept the conditions which it furnishes, or perish, and so he fits himself into the Indian clearings and follows the Indian trails.

Little by little he transforms the wilderness; but the outcome is not the old Europe, not simply the development of Germanic germs, any more than the first phenomenon was a case of reversion to the Germanic mark.

The fact is, that here is a new product that is American. At first, the frontier was the Atlantic coast. It was the frontier of Europe in a very real sense. Moving westward, the frontier became more and more American. As successive terminal moraines result from successive glaciations, so each frontier leaves its traces behind it, and when it becomes a settled area the region still partakes of the frontier characteristics.

Thus the advance of the frontier has meant a steady movement away from the influence of Europe, a steady growth of independence on American lines.

And to study this advance, the men who grew up under these conditions, and the political, economic, and social results of it, is to study the really American part of our history.

In the first half of the eighteenth century another advance occurred. Traders followed the Delaware and Shawnese Indians to the Ohio as early as the end of the first quarter of the century.

Spotswood, of Virginia, made an expedition in across the Blue Ridge. The end of the first quarter of the century saw the advance of the Scotch-Irish and the Palatine Germans up the Shenandoah Valley into the western part of Virginia, and along the Piedmont region of the Carolinas.

Settlements had begun on New River, a branch of the Kanawha, and on the sources of the Yadkin and French Broad. In the period of the Revolution the frontier crossed the Alleghanies into Kentucky and Tennessee, and the upper waters of the Ohio were settled.

The isolation of the region increased its peculiarly American tendencies, and the need of transportation facilities to connect it with the East called out important schemes of internal improvement, which will be noted farther on.

From decade to decade distinct advances of the frontier occurred. By the census of , [9] the settled area included Ohio, southern Indiana and Illinois, southeastern Missouri, and about one-half of Louisiana. This settled area had surrounded Indian areas, and the management of these tribes became an object of political concern.

The Mississippi River region was the scene of typical frontier settlements. The rising steam navigation [12] on western waters, the opening of the Erie Canal, and the westward extension of cotton [13] culture added five frontier states to the Union in this period.

Hardly is a new State or Territory formed before the same principle manifests itself again and gives rise to a further emigration; and so is it destined to go on until a physical barrier must finally obstruct its progress.

In the middle of this century the line indicated by the present eastern boundary of Indian Territory, Nebraska, and Kansas marked the frontier of the Indian country.

Railroads, fostered by land grants, sent an increasing tide of immigrants into the far West. The United States Army fought a series of Indian wars in Minnesota, Dakota, and the Indian Territory.

By the settled area had been pushed into northern Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota, along Dakota rivers, and in the Black Hills region, and was ascending the rivers of Kansas and Nebraska.

The development of mines in Colorado had drawn isolated frontier settlements into that region, and Montana and Idaho were receiving settlers. The frontier was found in these mining camps and the ranches of the Great Plains. The superintendent of the census for reports, as previously stated, that the settlements of the West lie so scattered over the region that there can no longer be said to be a frontier line.

The fall line marked the frontier of the seventeenth century; the Alleghanies that of the eighteenth; the Mississippi that of the first quarter of the nineteenth; the Missouri that of the middle of this century omitting the California movement ; and the belt of the Rocky Mountains and the arid tract, the present frontier.

Each was won by a series of Indian wars. At the Atlantic frontier one can study the germs of processes repeated at each successive frontier. We have the complex European life sharply precipitated by the wilderness into the simplicity of primitive conditions.

The first frontier had to meet its Indian question, its question of the disposition of the public domain, of the means of intercourse with older settlements, of the extension of political organization, of religious and educational activity.

And the settlement of these and similar questions for one frontier served as a guide for the next. For example, he may study the origin of our land policies in the colonial land policy; he may see how the system grew by adapting the statutes to the customs of the successive frontiers.

Each tier of new States has found in the older ones material for its constitutions. But with all these similarities there are essential differences, due to the place element and the time element. It is evident that the farming frontier of the Mississippi Valley presents different conditions from the mining frontier of the Rocky Mountains.

The frontier reached by the Pacific Railroad, surveyed into rectangles, guarded by the United States Army, and recruited by the daily immigrant ship, moves forward at a swifter pace and in a different way than the frontier reached by the birch canoe or the pack horse.

The geologist traces patiently the shores of ancient seas, maps their areas, and compares the older and the newer. Not only would there result a more adequate conception of American development and characteristics, but invaluable additions would be made to the history of society.

Loria, [21] the Italian economist, has urged the study of colonial life as an aid in understanding the stages of European development, affirming that colonial settlement is for economic science what the mountain is for geology, bringing to light primitive stratifications.

The United States lies like a huge page in the history of society. Line by line as we read this continental page from west to east we find the record of social evolution. It begins with the Indian and the hunter; it goes on to tell of the disintegration of savagery by the entrance of the trader, the pathfinder of civilization; we read the annals of the pastoral stage in ranch life; the exploitation of the soil by the raising of unrotated crops of corn and wheat in sparsely settled farming communities; the intensive culture of the denser farm settlement; and finally the manufacturing organization with city and factory system.

Particularly in eastern States this page is a palimpsest. What is now a manufacturing State was in an earlier decade an area of intensive farming. Thus Wisconsin, now developing manufacture, is a State with varied agricultural interests.

But earlier it was given over to almost exclusive grain-raising, like North Dakota at the present time. Each of these areas has had an influence in our economic and political history; the evolution of each into a higher stage has worked political transformations.

But what constitutional historian has made any adequate attempt to interpret political facts by the light of these social areas and changes?

The Atlantic frontier was compounded of fisherman, far trader, miner, cattle-raiser, and farmer. Excepting the fisherman, each type of industry was on the march toward the West, impelled by an irresistible attraction.

Each passed in successive waves across the continent. Stand at Cumberland Gap and watch the procession of civilization, marching single file—the buffalo following the trail to the salt springs, the Indian, the fur-trader and hunter, the cattle-raiser, the pioneer farmer—and the frontier has passed by.

Stand at South Pass in the Rockies a century later and see the same procession with wider intervals between. When the trappers scaled the Rockies, the farmer was still near the mouth of the Missouri.

Why was it that the Indian trader passed so rapidly across the continent? The trade was coeval with American discovery, The Norsemen, Vespuccius, Verrazani, Hudson, John Smith, all trafficked for furs.

The Plymouth pilgrims settled in Indian cornfields, and their first return cargo was of beaver and lumber. The records of the various New England colonies show how steadily exploration was carried into the wilderness by this trade.

What is true for New England is, as would be expected, even plainer for the rest of the colonies. All along the coast from Maine to Georgia the Indian trade opened up the river courses. Steadily the trader passed westward, utilizing the older lines of French trade. The Ohio, the Great Lakes, the Mississippi, the Missouri, and the Platte, the lines of western advance, were ascended by traders.

They found the passes in the Rocky Mountains and guided Lewis and Clarke, [24] Fremont, and Bidwell. The explanation of the rapidity of this advance is connected with the effects of the trader on the Indian.

The trading post left the unarmed tribes at the mercy of those that had purchased fire-arms—a truth which the Iroquois Indians wrote in blood, and so the remote and unvisited tribes gave eager welcome to the trader.

Thus the disintegrating forces of civilization entered the wilderness. Every river valley and Indian trail became a fissure in Indian society, and so that society became honeycombed.

Long before the pioneer farmer appeared on the scene, primitive Indian life had passed away. The farmers met Indians armed with guns. The trading frontier, while steadily undermining Indian power by making the tribes ultimately dependent on the whites, yet, through its sale of guns, gave to the Indians increased power of resistance to the farming frontier.

French colonization was dominated by its trading frontier; English colonization by its farming frontier. There was an antagonism between the two frontiers as between the two nations. Go see the forts that our king has established and you will see that you can still hunt under their very walls.

They have been placed for your advantage in places which you frequent. The English, on the contrary, are no sooner in possession of a place than the game is driven away.

The forest falls before them as they advance, and the soil is laid bare so that you can scarce find the wherewithal to erect a shelter for the night.

And yet, in spite of this opposition of the interests of the trader and the farmer, the Indian trade pioneered the way for civilization. The same origin can be shown for the railroads of the South, the far West, and the Dominion of Canada.

Louis, Council Bluffs, and Kansas City. Thus civilization in America has followed the arteries made by geology, pouring an ever richer tide through them, until at last the slender paths of aboriginal intercourse have been broadened and interwoven into the complex mazes of modern commercial lines; the wilderness has been interpenetrated by lines of civilization growing ever more numerous.

It is like the steady growth of a complex nervous system for the originally simple, inert continent. If one would understand why we are to-day one nation, rather than a collection of isolated states, he must study this economic and social consolidation of the country.

In this progress from savage conditions lie topics for the evolutionist. The effect of the Indian frontier as a consolidating agent in our history is important. From the close of the seventeenth century various intercolonial congresses have been called to treat with Indians and establish common measures of defense.

Particularism was strongest in colonies with no Indian frontier. This frontier stretched along the western border like a cord of union. The Indian was a common danger, demanding united action. Most celebrated of these conferences was the Albany congress of , called to treat with the Six Nations, and to consider plans of union.

Even a cursory reading of the plan proposed by the congress reveals the importance of the frontier. The powers of the general council and the officers were, chiefly, the determination of peace and war with the Indians, the regulation of Indian trade, the purchase of Indian lands, and the creation and government of new settlements as a security against the Indians.

It is evident that the unifying tendencies of the Revolutionary period were facilitated by the previous cooperation in the regulation of the frontier.

In this connection may be mentioned the importance of the frontier, from that day to this, as a military training school, keeping alive the power of resistance to aggression, and developing the stalwart and rugged qualities of the frontiersman. It would not be possible in the limits of this paper to trace the other frontiers across the continent.

The experience of the Carolina cowpens guided the ranchers of Texas. The effect of these great ranches on the subsequent agrarian history of the localities in which they existed should be studied.

In part this is due to Indian resistance, in part to the location of river valleys and passes, in part to the unequal force of the centers of frontier attraction.

Among the important centers of attraction may be mentioned the following: fertile and favorably situated soils, salt springs, mines, and army posts. The frontier army post, serving to protect the settlers from the Indians, has also acted as a wedge to open the Indian country, and has been a nucleus for settlement.

But all the more important expeditions were greatly indebted to the earliest pathmakers, the Indian guides, the traders and trappers, and the French voyageurs, who were inevitable parts of governmental expeditions from the days of Lewis and Clarke.

In an interesting monograph, Victor Hehn [31] has traced the effect of salt upon early European development, and has pointed out how it affected the lines of settlement and the form of administration.

A similar study might be made for the salt springs of the United States. The early settlers were tied to the coast by the need of salt, without which they could not preserve their meats or live in comfort.

An annual pilgrimage to the coast for salt thus became essential. Taking flocks or furs and ginseng root, the early settlers sent their pack trains after seeding time each year to the coast.

But when discovery was made of the salt springs of the Kanawha, and the Holston, and Kentucky, and central New York, the West began to be freed from dependence on the coast. It was in part the effect of finding these salt springs that enabled settlement to cross the mountains.

From the time the mountains rose between the pioneer and the seaboard, a new order of Americanism arose. The West and the East began to get out of touch of each other. The settlements from the sea to the mountains kept connection with the rear and had a certain solidarity.

But the overmountain men grew more and more independent. The East took a narrow view of American advance, and nearly lost these men. Kentucky and Tennessee history bears abundant witness to the truth of this statement. The East began to try to hedge and limit westward expansion.

Though Webster could declare that there were no Alleghanies in his politics, yet in politics in general they were a very solid factor. The exploitation of the beasts took hunter and trader to the west, the exploitation of the grasses took the rancher west, and the exploitation of the virgin soil of the river valleys and prairies attracted the farmer.

The land hunger of the Virginians drew them down the rivers into Carolina, in early colonial days; the search for soils took the Massachusetts men to Pennsylvania and to New York. As the eastern lands were taken up migration flowed across them to the west. Daniel Boone, the great backwoodsman, who combined the occupations of hunter, trader, cattle-raiser, farmer, and surveyor—learning, probably from the traders, of the fertility of the lands on the upper Yadkin, where the traders were wont to rest as they took their way to the Indians, left his Pennsylvania home with his father, and passed down the Great Valley road to that stream.

Learning from a trader whose posts were on the Red River in Kentucky of its game and rich pastures, he pioneered the way for the farmers to that region. Thence he passed to the frontier of Missouri, where his settlement was long a landmark on the frontier.

Here again he helped to open the way for civilization, finding salt licks, and trails, and land. His son was among the earliest trappers in the passes of the Rocky Mountains, and his party are said to have been the first to camp on the present site of Denver.

His grandson, Col. Boone, of Colorado, was a power among the Indians of the Rocky Mountains, and was appointed an agent by the Government. Generally, in all the western settlements, three classes, like the waves of the ocean, have rolled one after the other.

It is quite immaterial whether he ever becomes the owner of the soil. He builds his cabin, gathers around him a few other families of similar tastes and habits, and occupies till the range is somewhat subdued, and hunting a little precarious, or, which is more frequently the case, till the neighbors crowd around, roads, bridges, and fields annoy him, and he lacks elbow room.

The next class of emigrants purchase the lands, add field to field, clear out the roads, throw rough bridges over the streams, put up hewn log houses with glass windows and brick or stone chimneys, occasionally plant orchards, build mills, schoolhouses, court-houses, etc.

Another wave rolls on. Plus, guitarist Ernie C. The record was decried by the likes of President George Bush, Vice President Dan Quayle, New York governor Mario Cuomo and 60 members of Congress in a letter to Warner Bros.

A direct descendant of the power metal pioneered by Eighties heavyweights Helloween, Savatage and Blind Guardian, the subgenre of symphonic metal juxtaposed explosive sing-along hooks with lavish orchestration, whether produced via synthesizer or, in the case of a lucky few like Nightwish, full-scale orchestras.

But on their fifth album, Once , the band achieved their most pristinely balanced blend of force and melody. I look for new ideas mainly from movie scores.

The Virginia band, then a raw trio, harnessed the blur of blastbeats and hyperspeed riffs, but those elements were blown through the gnash and gnarl of Nineties alt-metal bands like Helmet and Unsane.

Hayes, inspired by transgressive authors like William S. Burroughs and Dennis Cooper, and shadow-lurking songwriters like Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave. But at the same time it was pretty thrilling. Fenriz built its atmosphere with cold, almost classical riffs, played through fuzzy distortion, at a constant, methodical mid-tempo, giving it a hypnotic quality.

By the time Entombed released their debut full-length, they had primed the nascent death-metal scene for an auspicious arrival with a series of demos under the name Nihilist. It never became that fun again. shopping malls, Left Hand Path remains the infernal northern light that inspired thousands of bands in Scandinavia and beyond.

After summoning two albums of dirty, Venom-inspired punk-metal bombast, Bathory discovered high drama and a sense of subterranean evil on Under the Sign of the Black Mark. Thirty years later, bands like Emperor, Satyricon, Darkthrone and just about every other torch-bearing group of miscreants in white face paint resound the echoes of Black Mark.

Bathory mainman Quorthon claimed to have arranged his shrieked vocals; blurred, repetitive guitars and drums; and eerie choral sound effects by trial and error.

The New Wave—gone-industrial malcontents of Ministry improbably managed to break into the mainstream by ditching their synthesizers for guitars and crafting a dense, nightmarish sound collage for their fifth LP, Psalm Beneath torrents of rapid-fire riffs, mastermind Al Jourgensen spliced sounds together the way a stock villain crafts a ransom note ­— sampling George H.

If only I could extract the magic, it would be like pulling a diamond ring out of a septic tank. Psalm 69 went platinum and peaked at Number 27 on the Billboard , allowing other industrial acts passage into the charts, including Marilyn Manson, Rammstein and Orgy.

The relentlessly prolific Swedish death-metal scene of the late Eighties and early Nineties revolved around dueling power centers. To the east sat sleek Stockholm, with its dirty, punk-informed take on the genre, as gurgled forth by Entombed and Dismember.

To the west lay the bleaker port city Gothenburg, where abiding love of Iron Maiden and classic heavy metal spawned a melodic revolution in Satan worship spearheaded by Dissection, In Flames and At the Gates. While recording in Berlin in winter , the band devoured anarcho-punk and industrial music, namely the work of avant-garde legends Einstürzende Neubauten, and hatched a dystopian concept album that shocked the metal underground the following summer.

While the speed and abrasiveness remained, the band coupled these elements with a remarkable sense of discipline, making room for industrial samples, shifting time signatures and memorable vocal melodies. By the time they finally did nab that elusive contract, with Atlantic Records, the band were a good 10 years into their career, and their trademark glam look had been usurped by a new crop of younger and prettier L.

Game changer. With a guitarist known for slashing his arms with a razor before gigs and an overtly satanic image, Morbid Angel hardly seemed like a band destined for the big time. But music-industry legend Irving Azoff saw it differently. Forget about British punk; true musical anarchy arrived in the U.

with the emergence of Welcome to Hell , a debauched celebration of Devil worship, drinking and wanton women by Newcastle trio Venom. The effect is beautiful.

Worldwide, Venom remain a classic band on par with the Ramones or Motörhead, and that status owes much to Welcome to Hell , an album duly credited as a key forerunner of black metal and death metal — fringe subgenres that have since become their own musical universes. Fronted by singer, guitarist and conceptualist Aaron Turner, the band took its leads from Melvins, Swans and especially Neurosis, whose mix of punishing heaviness, surprising delicacy and avant-garde sound design would prove strongly influential.

Oceanic , an archetypal saga about a desperate man seeking a female counterpart, was a decisive turning point, its songs endowed with atmospheres and textures so imaginative you practically could see them.

That was in a lot of ways, a point of solidification for us. Over the effortless, off-kilter riffing of Vernon Reid, the polyglot stew of Vivid gets extra urgency with sociopolitical lyrics about racism, gentrification and consumerism. And God bless their souls. They are keeping it alive.

In his autobiography, The Long Hard Road out of Hell , Manson describes that song as a turning point in his career. And nearly 30 years after its initial release, Mindcrime feels eerily relevant.

With frontman Chino Moreno now complementing the steely Stephen Carpenter on guitar, and Frank Delgado enlisted full-time on turntables and synths, the band mastered an equilibrium between mayhem and melody on White Pony.

But they chose a different path with their fourth full-length, delivering an audacious modernist-metal masterpiece that was as gorgeous and alluring as it was confrontational and subversive. On the surface, there was almost nothing traditionally metal about Godflesh beyond the distorted guitars, yet they were a product of the same bleak Birmingham environs that had spawned Black Sabbath two decades earlier.

Claudio Magris, my predecessor in this role of lecturer, describes it perfectly. A skeptical soul, on intimate terms with failure. What is a writer? And enjoys the prestige of a sort of priest. And has to carry the burden of priesthood.

This burden, for Rezzori, is the burden of fraudulence. I think this is what makes him feel sometimes closer to the spirit of our times than Nabokov. The writer described by Rezzori cannot take himself quite so seriously. He is like the priest who stands before his congregation, performing the ancient rights, invested, by those faithful souls, with all the magic and sacrality of the ritual he performs — but for whom the bread is only bread, and the wine, wine.

And if you are not first rate — or at least very near first rate, you are second rate. And when you find out that you are hopelessly second rate, it breaks your heart.

He found it by turning inwards: by obsessively mapping his own inner space. Here he is, answering my question and quoting Pope :. Rezzori: Why do I write? Rezzori: The search for the voice. Also the search for the secret of transformation, of living many lives in one life.

It is a simple and honest answer. It has a human scale. Why write? Pope writes because he is a writer, because he was born one, lisping numbers. From him we can expect no talk of muses or inspiration, of magic and witchcraft — that language is long lost.

They exist in different degrees in every writer, and in any one writer the proportions will vary from time to time, according to the atmosphere in which he is living.

They should print that up on T-shirts and hand them out at literary festivals. The opinion that art should have nothing to do with politics is itself a political attitude.

What interests me about this system of classification is whether or not any of it still stands. I see an immediate problem with number one: Sheer egoism. But I think Orwell, if he were alive today, might be surprised to find to what a degree writers have ceased to be the exception.

Now even work Orwell would have considered decent and honorable — teaching, nursing — is considered drudgery. The desire for fame and self-actualization or more precisely, fame through self-actualization is ubiquitous.

I cannot be the only writer to notice that her readings, when they happen, are no longer full of readers. To them, writing has little to do with reading. Now the Internet is crammed with mini-Roths, with people living their own lives — and speaking of their own lives with utter frankness — to anyone who will listen.

Because I am a writer! Well, you can shout it as loud as you like, as loud as Orwell did, but be aware that everyone else is shouting it, too, and has exactly the same claim upon the word as you do.

Many fake writers are published, and many real writers exist on the Internet: the opposition will not hold for long. What about the second motive, the aesthetic motive?

The micro-work of attending to the beauty and fitness of a sentence is a healthy antidote to the sometimes pseudo-spiritual claims that are made for the act of writing, and of being a writer. Better to think of oneself as a specialist craftsman.

Many people know how to bang a chair together — they understand the basic principle of a chair. But can they make a chair as finely worked as yours?

As decorative, as useful, as surprising in style and structure? This may not seem a very noble or exalted role for the 21st century Writer — maybe it sounds a little too much like drudgery. It is certainly going to get to the point where the fact you spent twenty minutes crafting a sentence and the next fellow spent ten seconds dashing one off will make no difference to how many people read that sentence, how much either of you get paid for that sentence, or even what impact that sentence has on its readers.

Many people now read so quickly and with so little care, they barely register the arguments of what they read, no matter the nuances of style.

To carry on writing sentences like a craftsman, you will have to make a commitment to the absurd idea that slowing down, taking your time, listening and attending to your own words, is still worth doing. I am making a chair that nobody wants! I think always people will be reading them but it will be a small group of people.

Maybe more people than now read Latin poetry, but somewhere in that range… To read a novel requires a certain amount of concentration, focus, devotion to the reading. No, we have to take some personal responsibility.

The desire to see things as they are. This seems to me, for the 21st century writer, no small ambition. All writers should be strong and enthusiastic members of the reality-based community.

But again: get ready for a fight. I had an argument not long ago with a young man who believes that the plane never hit the towers, and the towers themselves were blown up with dynamite by the American government, a common enough belief in my corner of North London. It seemed at first a very easy argument to win: then I realized what I was dealing with.

It does no good pointing out that there is a difference in kind between one paper and another, one TV channel and another, one politician and another, one academic or journalist and another. In a sense we have to keep starting from scratch.

The loss of faith is simply too great. We are back in an earlier epistemological period, when people needed to have an intimate encounter with a truth before they would accept it. No amount of back page blurb about your MFA or your university degree or your time living with monkeys in Kathmandu will convince anyone that you can write, or have a reason to write.

Because you desire to see things as they are. A writer has to work incredibly hard these days to counter the great mass of fatuous, venal and false realities heavily promoted to people through their TVs and magazines, consoles and Ipads.

When counterfeit realities are all around us, the desire to see things as they are is itself a radical act. This is what a terrorist is. This is what an immigrant is. Members of the reality-based community have a duty to try and complicate the narrative; to render the world in all its incredible variety.

I know that for English and American writers such arguments can feel like liberal piety, a last ditch attempt to defend a decadent and dead form. But you only have to inch out of the English speaking world to be reminded that forms we may believe to be conservative yet possess, for many other people, a great vitality, and that the difference in response depends not on content but context.

I see that somehow I have swung all the way round to the heroic and abstract again! I should make it clear before I finish that when I sit down to write I am not hoping to destroy the monolithic capitalist industrial complex with my pen. I am feeling pointless and absurd. And the only way to contain those feelings is to reduce my task to its smallest unit: this sentence.

I am writing to make this sentence; to make it as good as I can manage, and the next one, too. I find that simple mantra very comforting. Rezzori is at his best in the Snows of Yesteryear creating the exquisite reality of Cassandra, his feral nanny with her simian face and that gigantic plait laid across her head; I am at my best sitting at my computer trying to make one imagined person speak to another — not giving lectures like this.

To make that sentence, to finish that page. Is caring about sentences an aesthetic indulgence, the cultural equivalent of fiddling while Rome burns? I never understand that argument. What else does a writer have but sentences?

Asking a writer to forget about sentences is like telling a builder not to worry about the quality of his bricks. Because you care about this small matter of sentences: you think it important. Of making things with their own hands. Of taking their time. Of life on a human scale.

These are ways of restating our human capacities in a world that frequently sees us only as producer or consumers. I think we are entering a revolutionary period of intimacy between writer and reader.

They will only know you can write by reading you, by feeling the fitness, beauty and power of your sentences as they resound or fail to within their own minds. That has always ultimately been the case, of course, but now that essential human connection must do all the work, as the scaffolding of publishing that held up and supported the relationship and provided cover when it was weak begins to crumble.

To express the reality of human capacities. Without that, there can be no art and no politics. The way we live now is designed to encourage us to believe that our only worthwhile capacities are the ones that enable us to buy things.

We delegate out consciences to activists and charities. Writing — no matter how pitiful or absurd it might feel to do it — allows us to demonstrate the fact that we do still have abilities, ideas and means of communication that are our own, unrelated to our credit cards or social positions.

It enables us to see the end of our actions — at least here, on this page. And those who do it for the prestige or power they think will follow are soonest disappointed. You are only as good as the page you are writing, or a page of yours that someone just read.

Of this I have personal experience: the sentence most frequently attributed to me online was in fact written by my husband. How will writers then be paid? I have no idea. My Viking Air. Updates on Current Sailings. Travel Information. Travel Protection Plan. Frequently Asked Questions.
