Book Description

This collection of essays attempts to analyse common assumptions about art, literature and criticism at the time of publication in 1895. Taking the position of ‘a Philistine’ , Spender argues against the ‘new’ art and fiction and encourages the average member of the public to state their opinion and give validation that the average view is just as worthy as the ‘new’ criticism which tended toward superiority. This title will be of interest to students of Literature, Art and Art History.
