Author: Walter Jackson Bate
Publisher: New York : Oxford University Press, 1961, ©1955.
Series: Galaxy book.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
The emphasis in this book has been on Johnson's own writing, especially on that part of his writing which is concerned with human experience in the broadest sense. Instead of trying, however, to duplicate the existing analyses of his individual works, the intention here has been to distribute the discussion according to the over-all themes of his writing and the character of his thinking as far as I understand it. -  Read more...
