"De Aar dust & heat" Read the full letter


H Fielding Hall

Harold Fielding Hall was the author of The Soul of a People (1898), a book which had a profound impact on Olive Schreiner, who recommended it widely amongst her friends and family. In 1902, for instance, she wrote to Will Schreiner and urged him to read the book, adding, “It is the most beautiful book I ever read: it has been to me like rain falling on a dry thirsty ground to read it.” There are any such comments across her letters, although she was also clear-sighted about the paradoxes of its contents and its impact on her.
