Excerpt from The Work of Robert Nathan

It is Amazing how few writers seem ever to resemble the things they write. You are likely to find that a man who writes 3 heroic and romantic tales is a wizened, nearsighted little fellow with no chin and a trembling lip, or the lady who writes in a mincing nasty-nice style, devoting all her energies to mere arrangements of words, is a plain old maid who dresses atrociously and wears a pince-nez dangling from the end of her nose. The strangest things come from the strangest persons. But I have known one or two writers who looked like what they wrote. Certainly there are moments when George Moore's dank figure and yellow hair resembles nothing so much as the more sea-sick portions of Lewis Seymour. And Conrad had a wild look and a singular fantastic Satanic beauty and so resembled such tales as Almayer's Folly and Nostromo. Hugh Walpole resembles the solid roast beef which he writes.
