I never helped any one expecting that it would do any good; I helped because I was helpless to do otherwise. I was against life, on principle. Even in the 'Tropics' Miller is, of course, an extraordinarily diffuse and uneven writer. But inwardly they stank. His work does not allow of the mild alternatives of liking or disliking.
