    have worked hard and willingly yet my manuscripts do not sell What is the matter with my preparation What books should I read What course should I take And in a wider way these are the questions that are to day being asked throughout the length and breadth of this continent Now the purpose of this volume is to answer these questions by pointing out that the fault is primarily with the would be authors themselves and not with their preparation The best teaching they can anywhere receive is at most a makeshift a mere starting point they must learn to rely upon themselves and the earlier the better The most that this book or any other can do is to guide them away from certain wrong paths and toward certain right ones they must cultivate self criticism industry the art of taking infinite pains the habit of looking upon to day s failures as the stepping stones toward to morrow s success The laurels of authorship are worth the winning largely because there is no primrose path leading to them New York April 13 1911 CONTENTS CHAPTER PAGE I The inborn talent 3 II The Power of self criticism 47 III The Author s Purpose 79 IV The technique of form 115 V The gospel of infinite pains 153 VI The question of clearness 179 VII The question of style 209 VIII The technique of translating 243 Not listed on the contents page Index 269 This work is in the public domain in the United States because it was published before January 1 1923 The author died in 1937 so this work is also in the public domain in countries and areas where the copyright term is the author s life plus 75 years or less This work may

    comic though there may be room for a difference of opinion on this latter point This superiority of the Celtic folk tales is due as much to the conditions under which they have been collected as to any innate superiority of the folk imagination The folk tale in England is in the last stages of exhaustion The Celtic folk tales have been collected while the practice of story telling is still in full vigour though there are every signs that its term of life is already numbered The more the reason why they should be collected and put on record while there is yet time On the whole the industry of the collectors of Celtic folk lore is to be commended as may be seen from the survey of it I have prefixed to the Notes and References at the end of the volume Among these I would call attention to the study of the legend of Beth Gellert the origin of which I believe I have settled While I have endeavoured to render the language of the tales simple and free from bookish artifice I have not felt at liberty to retell the tales in the English way I have not scrupled to retain a Celtic turn of speech and here and there a Celtic word which I have not explained within brackets a practice to be abhorred of all good men A few words unknown to the reader only add effectiveness and local colour to a narrative as Mr Kipling well knows One characteristic of the Celtic folk tale I have endeavoured to represent in my selection because it is nearly unique at the present day in Europe Nowhere else is there so large and consistent a body of oral tradition about the national and mythical heroes as amongst the Gaels Only the byline or hero songs of Russia equal in extent the amount of knowledge about the heroes of the past that still exists among the Gaelic speaking peasantry of Scotland and Ireland And the Irish tales and ballads have this peculiarity that some of them have been extant and can be traced for well nigh a thousand years I have selected as a specimen of this class the Story of Deirdre collected among the Scotch peasantry a few years ago into which I have been able to insert a passage taken from an Irish vellum of the twelfth century I could have more than filled this volume with similar oral traditions about Finn the Fingal of Macpherson s Ossian But the story of Finn as told by the Gaelic peasantry of to day deserves a volume by itself while the adventures of the Ultonian hero Cuchulain could easily fill another I have endeavoured to include in this volume the best and most typical stories told by the chief masters of the Celtic folk tale Campbell Kennedy Hyde and Curtin and to these I have added the best tales scattered elsewhere By this means I hope I
