THURBER MUSES ON HIS INFLUENCES.

THURBER, JAMES. 1894-1961. Typed Letter Signed ("James Thurber"), to Angus Davidson who is preparing a biography on Edward Lear, 2 pp, 4to, n.p., July 7, 1937, toning to both leaves, both leaves laid down to larger board with stains from adhesives.

Thurber writes the author of Edward Lear: Landscape Painter and Nonsense Poet (1938), responding to a query about whether or not Lear's comedy has influenced him. In part: "I am ashamed to admit that I was not brought up on his writings or drawings, an educational omission which I will never forgive my parents. I began to draw, much the same was as I do now, about 1917, when I was twenty-three years old ... I did not see the drawings of Clarence Day until after my pictures began to appear in the New Yorker ... I think the drawings of men who cannot really draw—that is, who are not great or natural draughtsmen—are bound to have a similarity, just as the drawings of children invariable have: a simplicity, a directness, a naivete which eludes the easy and practiced hand."
