Delmore Schwartz became the voice of a new generation, when In Dreams Begin Responsibilities was published in the debut issue of 'Partisan Review' in 1937. The title story tells of an unnamed young man who has a dream that he is in an old-fashioned movie theatre in 1909. As he sits down to watch the film, he starts to realize that it is a motion picture documenting his parents' courtship. At turns he becomes engrossed, upset and outraged, in a story that set the stage for the arrival of an acclaimed literary voice.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A poignant portrait of... two generations, and the clashes, gulfs and 'unbreakable unity' between them... his best stories view his characters with such sharpness that the wider significances never seem forced. * Independent *
Many of the stories in this fine collection have a strange clairvoyance; they are dark with the threat of imminent catastrophe. * Observer *
Schwartz had been a pioneer, a golden boy, an exemplar to those who followed him... As for the stories in this reprinted collection, the more expressionist their mode is, the more widely they stray from the canons of naturalism, so the more compelling and affecting they become. * New Statesman *
