The Literary Fallacy

Excerpt

This book consists of lectures which I delivered on the Patten Foundation at Indiana University in March, 1943. In preparing them for publication I have considerably expanded a preliminary statement which was part of the first lecture and have set it off as Chapter I. I have also eliminated a number of expressions required by platform delivery, and have supplied footnotes to two chapters which were tolerably close-packed without them.

I am indebted to Wallace Stegner for checking my account of John Wesley Powell, to Dr. Robert Henry Aldrich for helping me through the history of burns, and to Mrs. N. Preston Breed for preparing the typescript and reading the proofs.
