PART II - BOOKS
CHAPTER VI - WORD-MAKING AND SOUND TAKING

WAS William de Morgan a good novelist? No one speaks of him to-day, I "have not read him for twenty years and know he is full of lapses. But one of the lapses was so congenial to me that it has found refuge in that rabbitwarren, my mind, and bred progeny there. It is a sentimental lapse, on the subject of music. Perhaps in Yoseph Vance, perhaps in Alice for Short, a little tune is introduced, and words are put to it, a tune by Beethoven. The tune floats out of upper windows and is heard by Mr. de Morgan's characters when they are feeling depressed. They are cheered by the sound of the piano ; they pull themselves together as the pianist's left hand passes over her right, and as she hits the upper G successfully they leap towards the happy ending which their kindly creator has destined for them. Happy universe ! Happy tune ! Nice words :
No, no, no, you're quite mistaken. No, no, no, you must be wrong. For that is how it goes.
How Proust, in his far from happy universe, would wince at this ! Proust also has a little tune, the petite phrase of the Vinteuil sonata which presents facet after facet to the varying sensitiveness of his characters. It would be impossible for Proust to label a tune. He understands too much about music, and also about people, to suppose that the relationship between them could be bottled up in words. The author of Somehow Good, knew no such scruples, and I don't know all of them myself. I feel bound to put words to a classical tune every now and then, and this is an example of what I can do :
Ah no, ah no,
The world will yet be saved, be saved,
Ah nd, ah no,
The world will yet be saved,
Be saved.
