Excerpt

Of this book, all the chapters except the last appeared originally in the Bookman; the last was printed in the Yale Review for July 1916. My sketch of the advance of the novel in English includes two centuries. I have laid the chief stress on recent and contemporary writers, although it has been impossible even to approach completeness of treatment. Many novelists are omitted that may seem important; but the book is a record of personal impressions and opinions. I shall be glad if some individuals feel the pleasure of recognition, the pleasure of opposition, and a stimulus to further reading.
