A Convergence of the Creative and the Critical: A Reading of the Novels of Henry Green through the Literary Criticism of T.S. Eliot and F.R. Leavis (Paperback)Patrick MacDermott (author)
- We can order this
This book takes a fresh approach to Green, one that places his work firmly in its contemporary critical context. By exploring the insights of two of the most formative critics of the period, T.S. Eliot and F.R. Leavis, the book explores how Green was able to bring about creative tension between the competing claims of formal innovation and social engagement. Through new explanations and evaluations of the texts, the author demonstrates the depth and originality of Green's achievement in tangible and specific form. The book also explores the particularly productive relationship between creative and critical endeavours that flourished in this landmark literary period.
