T. S. Eliot,
“One cannot make a living in literature. No-one makes a living on literature. Nobody even makes a living on fiction; but a man can live on facts.”
I will not argue that the man who would not make a living on fiction would have made a pretty penny in the commercial art world but, if I may say so, I say that a man, one might say a very valuable man has made a pretty penny in the commercial world – and that is the man who is to be found in the last chapter of Moby-Dick, written by the Englishman Thomas Carlyle a quarter of a century ago. This man was a millionaire then and has done rather well since (not that Mr. Carlyle was a bad man, but he was not a very good one). He was also a great writer – in fact “of great writing”, as he wrote to his brother William in 1899-1900 – and one of his great novels, The Sea Goes Round, is being translated in the United States by a great American novelist – one who was probably a much better writer than the author of The Sea Goes Round, and in fact a much better dramatist but still. The Sea Goes Round might be called a novel about a man who has to sail around the world with a sailboat, a very good book – perhaps the best book of the nineteenth century – and one of Mr. Carlyle’s great novels (in fact, the most important novel), but one of Mr. Carlyle’s great novels is one about the character of a millionaire who is going round the world – and in it the character of the millionaire is not exactly that of the one who is the author of the novel. So, indeed, was Mr. Carlyle’s own world-travelling book, which, in fact, was not really about Mr. Carlyle’s character at all but about the character of the “middle of the road” man. In it Mr. Carlyle is a middle-class Englishman who spends his time on the “bottom of the road”, buying things all the while with a view to being able to leave them when he has got what he wanted.
