Excerpt: WHEN I wrote The Devil?s Pool, the first of a series of pastoral tales which I meant to bring out together under the title of Tales of a Hemp?dresser, I had no system in view, and no design of introducing a revolution into literature. No one man has ever effected a revolution; for a revolution, especially in art, is an unconscious change which everybody has had a hand in. But this is not applicable to tales of rustic life, which have always existed, at all times, and under all forms, and have been sometimes pompous, sometimes affected, and sometimes natural.
