In 1919 writer and poet Richard Aldington was asked to write an article to identify young writers Aldington thought would become known to the public. After writing the article, he received a letter from the editor saying, “For God’s sake, can’t you think of somebody who had been heard of or is ever likely to be heard of.”
Aldington protested and the piece was sent to essayist and critic Logan Pearsall Smith to arbitrate the merits of the list, who decided that the writers would never be heard of, and the article was rejected.
The list of writers was: James Joyce, T.S, Eliot, D.H. Lawrence, Aldous Huxley, Marcel Proust, and poet, novelist, and memoirist H.D. [the only one I had never heard of but became famous in her own right, including a renewed interest in her life and work in the 1970s and 1980s].
I especially love how the critics reacted to Huxley's interest in spirituality - basically feeling like he had gone insane.
