CHAPTER XIII
THE EARLY TWENTIETH CENTURY

occasionally sending his unattractive-looking manuscripts to some editor, who would toss them into the nearest wastepaper basket. At last, and almost too late, one of Thompson's efforts reached the hands of an editor who did not toss it away. He was Wilfrid Meynell, the editor of Merry England and the husband of the poetess Alice Meynell. Tremendously impressed by the beauty of the thing-it was an essay on Shelley-he took the trouble to seek out the writer, and found him more dead than alive, a mere wreck of a man. Both the Meynells, the husband and the wife, helped and befriended Francis Thompson with delicate sympathy and fearless compassion. They brought him back to self-respect, to hopefulness, even to some measure of health. During the years that remained to him they and their children were his constant friends, and he repaid their goodness in the imperishable gold of his verse. Love in Dian's Lap immortalizes his ardent gratitude to Alice Meynell, and Sister Songs was written for her young daughters; but his greatest achieve ment in verse was The Hound of Heaven, a record of personal spiritual experience.
Thompson's style is passionately his own. It is vibrant, sensitive, full of sorrowful melodies and most magnificent colours. It has, indeed, more colour than substance, more swiftness than strength. His philosophy is richly tinted with religious symbolism, and may perhaps be summed up in his belief that all created things

Near or far
Hiddenly
To each other linked are,
And thou canst not stir a flower
Without troubling of a star.
