In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Vil, been intended as satires, that the apparently optimistic endings may have overtones of irony. While I find Hall's close analyses of "The Death of Simon Fuge," THE OLD WIVES' T/JJL, and the Clayhanger trilogy especially interesting, provocative , and often acute, I regret Hall's too easy dismissal of the later books as of no great esthetic interest or worth. Hall's selected bibliography of writings about Bennett contains most of the important works but might be supplemented with the continuing lists which have been published in EFT since Winter, 1957. One might particularly add Tillyard's controversial section on Bennett in EPIC STR.JN IN THE ENGLISH NOVEL (1958), Vittoria Sanaa's ,JlNOLD BENNET E I ROKJiZI DELLE CITTa (1953), T.J. Roberts' article on "Matador" in THE GRiJJUaTE STUDENT OF ENGLISH (Summer, 1958), and James G. Hepburn's University of Pennsylvania thesis (1957). Mr. Hall's book, although it is not the big, thoroughgoing critical book that Bennett deserves, is nevertheless a commendable critical study of limited scope that belongs on the Bennett shelf beside the works of Pound, Lafourcade, Allen, Massoulard, and others. -— H.E,G, BOOKS RECEIVED Henry Adams.
