William Dean Howells to Howard Pyle, July 27, 1895
What types of spiritual writings did Pyle do . . I am not familiar with any specifics.
At this point (Summer 1895), Pyle's spiritual writings included "In Tenebras" (Harper's Monthly, February 1894), "To the Soil of the Earth" (The Cosmopolitan, June 1892), and the unpublished work-in-progress "Semper Idem," which later became "Rejected of Men" (Harper and Brothers, 1903). All three texts can be found on Google Books if you'd like to read them.
Thanks Ian! I am currently teaching a course on American Illustration with a major emphasis on Pyle. I appreciate the website!
Also, in May 1891 Pyle sent Howells some “thoughts on immortality and infinity.” But these were not published and have been lost.And I should have noted “The Garden Behind the Moon,” but Howells hadn’t yet read it when he made his statement. The same goes for “Travels of the Soul” (Century Magazine, December 1902) and “Hope and Memory” (Century Magazine, November 1901) - and a few other bits and pieces.
