The English Novel
A Short Critical HistoryBook - 1954
In this panorama of English fiction the development of the novel is followed from Pilgim's Progress to James Joyce and D. H. Lawrence. The evolution of the novel during this period of 250 years is revealed by an appraisal of the work of the most significant of our novelists, and in this place of sustained analysis Mr. Walter Allen shows himself to be an acute and sensitive critic as well as authoritative historian.
