Excerpt

Of the three essays included here the first was originally given as a broadcast talk in the Youth Looks Ahead series; after some consideration I have decided to print it in the form in which it was spoken, with two slight verbal alterations. The third appeared recently in Left Review, where it was also subjected to certain severe criticisms by Montagu Slater: in spite of these I feel it may be worth reprinting, for the writer who wishes the truth to be found must lay himself open to criticism on every possible occasion, and to be proved wrong is only a lesser service to truth than to prove oneself right.

C. DAY LEWIS.
