In The Land Of Art

(1923)
A novel by

 
Extract:
Behind the mountain covered with gardens and
villas, along whose slope extended the city, the pale
winter sun was sinking, enveloping it in a cloud of
golden haze. Along the great wharves, crossed here
and there by Venetian bridges, rose the piercing dis-
cordant symphony of commercial activity, the shriek-
ing of the camions, the heavy rumble of the big-bellied
casks, the shouts of the longshoremen, the monotonous
cry of "Oh, oh, isa I" from the sailors stirring about
the decks of the ships anchored in a row before the
buildings; and, looking through an entangled forest
of ratlines and cables, sails and flags, to another pier
beyond, the eye could make out a battalion returning
from its training camp, marching along in the white
uniform and little red cap of the mechanic, diminished
by the distance into the semblance of pretty little sol-
diers from a toy bazaar.
