[ii]
When all the novelists and spinners of elaborate fictions have
been read and judged, we shall find that the peasant and the nurse
are still unsurpassed as mere narrators. They are the guardians of
that treasury of legend which comes to us from the very childhood
of nations; they and their tales are the abstract and brief chronicles,
not of an age merely, but of the whole race of man. It is theirs to
keep alive the great art of telling stories as a thing wholly apart from
and independent of the art of writing stories, and to pass on their art
to children and to children's children. They abide in a realm of theirown, in blessed isolation from that world of professional authors
and their milk-and-water books "for children."
—C. B. TINKER, "In Praise of Nursery Lore," The Unpopular
Review, October-December, 1916.
