GREAT AMERICAN AUTHORS
A BACKWARD LOOK

Just as Prospero (page 13) was able by the aid of the -Magic Wand to call forth a rich spectacle for the delight of the lovers, so you have been able-because you possess the magic power of getting life from the printed page-to enjoy the companionship of six great authors whom all Americans love and claim as their own. By means of the pictures you were able to know how these writers looked, and your acquaintance was further increased by reading their biographies and selections from their
' works. So, now, whenever you hear or see the name of any one of these authors, your mind will call up his picture together with a whole group of facts about his life and works. Moreover, this knowledge will act as a magnet, drawing to it more and more facts as your experience widens through reading, traveling, and listening to interesting people.
Who are the authors with whom you became acquainted in reading the selections in Part III? Can you recall the picture of each, or do you find it necessary to refresh your memory by referring to pages 325, 335, 344, 354, 403, 412? Do you
think that most boys and girls in the presence of a real author would feel in the way humorously described on page 322? What is suggested on page 324 as the test of literature? Let us apply this test to "The Planting of the Apple Tree." In this poem Bryant tells us in a beautiful way about something he has himself seen; as he watches the simple process, his imagination pictures the future, and What he sees and feels he has power to make his readers experience. Apply this test similarly to "The Village Blacksmith," "The Barefoot Boy," and to other selections in Part III.
What do you remember most vividly about Benjamin Franklin? Perhaps one of your classmates has read all of the Autobiography and can tell other interesting facts about his life. How many reminders of Franklin are there in your town besides the post office and the library? What tells you he was thrifty? What
