Life interests him so much that he devours without digesting it. The result is like a moving picture run too fast. The versifier also lacks measure.

A sheep corral fenced with brush and twisted roots, in which were long, shallow feed troughs and flat-roofed sheds, leaped out of nowhere, was for a few moments, and vanished like a scene in a moving picture. A dim, gray mass of color on a hillside was agitated like a sea wave. It was a flock of sheep moving toward the corral.

Meanwhile he was supervising manager of the Associated Mid-western Film Materials Company, spending six months of each year ...
