Author's Desire
Is, to 'Create'
Gator Feature Writer
Like holding a red hot poker, this is the task of writing as
described by University of Florida Lecturer in English Andrew
Lytle, who is recognized as one of Americas best contemporary
The hot poker symbolizes the authors intense desire to create,
while his grasp at it portrays his power to express that desire.
Author of two best sellers, Lytle commented that writing is a
combination of long waiting and hard work. He worked nine
years on his most recent best seller, The Velvet Horn. Lytle
modestiy admitted that he considers this novel to be the best of
his four books. The Long Night has also been listed on the
best seller list.
Every serious writer has only one message, remarked the
creative writing instructor. The secret is to discover that mes message.
sage. message. As a teacher, Lytle feels his job is to help the student to
understand what he is trying to say.
The quiet gentleman from Murfreesboro, Tennessee observed
that, Style is given to you like the color of your eyes. Lytle
feeis the art of writing is a gift that cannot be taught. The teach teacher
er teacher must aid in the perfection of style by developing good form. He
added, You may have all kinds of talent, but if you dont know
how to use ityou fail.
Vanderbilt, Oxford
The novelist graduated from Vanderbilt University with a
bachelor of arts degree. Prior to that he attended Oxford Univer University
sity University in England and studied privately in Europe.
Lytle was head of the fiction department at the University of
lowa and has taught at Southwestern College and the University
of the South in Tennessee.
The middle-aged man remarked that his reason for leaving
the north and coming to Florida is. Its just too cold up there.
Lytles interests beyond the fields of writing and teaching ex extend
tend extend to acting and farming in Tennessee. He worked in drama dramatics
tics dramatics in New York while doing research on his first book, a bi biography

In spite of his varied activities, the novelist devotes an aver average
age average of five hours daily to writing. He rises at 5 ajm. each morn morning
ing morning and writes until ten oclock.
Lytle writes in the same place eaoh day, claiming that con consistent
sistent consistent atmosphere and surroundings are as important as con consistent
sistent consistent time given to writing daily.
The novelist explains his interest in writing: I never wanted
to do anything else. Although many factors stimulated his desire
to create, Lytle remarked the primary reason was his close con contact
tact contact with literature most of his life.
literary Renaissance
While studying at Vanderbilt he joined the fugitive Poets,
a group of dignitaries which ITclaimed to have caused a literary
renaissance in the South. His associates in this group included
Robert Penn Warren, author and Allen Tate, noted critic.
Lytles book, The Velvet Horn, was voted by over 5,000
critics as runner-up in the National' Book Award selection of the
best book of the year.
What type of book is The Velvet Horn and what is it about?
Lytle answers, The novels voice speaks in the book itself.
The novelist observed that the conclusion to his books is not
predetermined. My process of writing is the discovery at the
way the plot is moving and developing. I cannot foresee its end ending.

The ideas for his novels come from many sources: a passing
mood, a character, a scene or an illusion.
A good novel, according to Lytle, deals with the universal
elemerft of life. His books are written about things that are for forever
ever forever true in the human scene.
His reasons for Southern background in his books are, I live
here and know the manners and moods of the South. His other
two novels are At the Moons Inn and A Name For Evil.
Professor Lytle will start a new novel in the fall. At that
time A Name For Evil and four short stories will come out
under one binding.
No Simple Formula
Lytle believes that both writing and teaching are an art
that cannot be reduced to a simple formula. As a teacher he aims
at developing his students talents. He emphasized, however, that
art is a devotion and one must take the. risk of failing.
His success in ten years of teaching has been proven by the

You are to be highly com commended

forts efforts to raise the stature of
the University of Florida so mat
it may become a first rated
institution of higher learning.
In these editorials you have
called on the administration, the
faculty and the leaders of our
state government to do their
share in this common venture.
No university can hope to be
a center of culture and learn learning

Body and a group of student
leaders who are seriously inter interested
ested interested in culture and learning.
In fact, I would say that there
is little hope for the Student
Body as a whole unless student
leaders perform their proper
function of leadership In that
For the past weeks, I have
carefully watched to see what
sort of cultural leadership the
editorial staff of your paper
has provided. I find your re record

there have been a number of
recitals by members of our mu music

completely ignored by the Al Alligator

more than the routine hand-outs
from the News Bureau about
the elections to Phi Beta Kappa.
No effort is made, apparently,
to find out from the various
departments, what sort of scho scholarships,
larships, scholarships, fellowships, etc. have
been won by Florida students.
Let me cite another example.
'Due campus receives a steady

have the student leaders who
edit the Alligator any opinions

I think that as long as the
Alligator remains content to bo

be little hope that the Student
Body as a whole will be able
to live up to the expectations
expressed in your editorials.

This has been, perhaps, to
harsh on the Alligator and those
who produce it. I have little
contact with the leaders of our
Student Government; I can,
therefore, say little about their
views on some of the points
I have raised in this letter. I
have the impression that they
are preoccupied with what is
loosely called campus politics,
this is to say, the division of
spoils between competing sets of
aspirants for office who really
have little to offer in form of an
ordered set of ideas or programs.
I have observed great efforts
to strengthen the Honor System
& procedural matter but
little effort to make this cam campus
pus campus what it should be: a center
of serious intelliectural effort.
This lack of concern with in intellectural

shows up in many ways. I
was shocked when I attended
Lyceum Council productions sev several

would wander in and out while
the visiting artists were in the

bring cokes, talk freely with
their neighbors. They gave
every indication that they came
because it was free (as part of
the activity fee) and were not
prepared to respect the indivi individual
dual individual who was performing for
them. I have not been at a Ly Lyceum
ceum Lyceum production in many years.
I wonder whether the conditions
have improved.
Finally, let me again address
myself to the problem of stu student

have serious doubts whether

Other companies cancelled

felt in engineering fields, with

I have lived a number of

Today in this age of technology when engineering graduates are
wooed and courted by all of Americas great industries, how do
you account for the fact that Rimbaud Sigafoos, who finished
at the very top of his class at M.1.T., turned down hundreds of
attractive job offers to accept employment as a machinery
wiper at the Acme Ice Company at a salary of S2O a week with
a twelve-hour day, a seven-day week, and only fifteen minutes
for lunch?
dxkant wooed wfaxirt&f-
I know what you are thinking: Cherchet la femmeT You are
thinking that Mr. Acme, head of the Acme lee Company, has
a beautiful daughter with whom Rimbaud is madly in love and
he took the job only to be near her.
Friends, you are wrong. It is true that Mr. Acme does have
a daughter, a large, torpid lass named Ciavdia who spends afl
her waking hours scooping marzipan out of a bucket and stating
at a television set which has not worked in some years. Rim Rimbaud
baud Rimbaud has not the slightest interest in Ciavdia; nor, indeed, does
any other man, excepting possibly John Ringfing North.
So how come Rimbaud keeps working for the Acme loe Com Company?
pany? Company? Can it be that they provide him with free Uadboo
Cigarettes, and all day long he enjoys that filter, that flavor,
that flip-top box?
No, friends, no. Rimbaud is not allowed to smoke on the job,
and when he finishes his long, miserable day, he has to buy has
own Mariboros, even as you and I, in order to enjoy that
estimable filter, that incomparable flavor, that crazy flip-top box.
Well, friends, you might as well give up because you'll never
in a million years guess why Rimbaud works for the Acme Ice
Company. The reason is simply this: Rimbaud is a seal!
He started as a performing seal in vaudeville. One night on
the way to the Ed Sullivan show, he took the wrong subway.
All night the poor mammal rode the 8.M.T., seeking a helping
hand. Finally a kindly brakeman named Ernest Thompson
Sigafoos rescued the hapless Rimbaud.
He took Rimbaud home and raised him as his own, and
Rimbaud, to show his appreciation, studied hard and got ex excellent
cellent excellent marks and finished a distinguished academic career as
valedictorian of M.I.T.
Rimbaud never complained to his kindly foster father, but
through all those years of grammar school and high school and
college, he dam near died of the heat! A seal, you must remem remember,
ber, remember, is by nature a denizen of the Arctic, so you can imagine
how poor Rimbaud must have suffered in subtropical New York
and Boston, especially in those tight Ivy League suits.
But today at the Acme Ice Company, Rimbaud has finally
found a temperature to his liking. He is very happy and sends
greetings to hie many friends.

Any time, any clime, you yet a lot to like with Marlboro,
whose makers take pleasure in bringing you this column,
