Dr Leavis's choice from Scrutiny provides in volumes vital fabric which isn't simply to be had in other places. even though many famous books have already been derived from Scrutiny, those volumes don't replica fabric in these books, they usually provide loads of differently uncollected fabric via Dr & Mrs Leavis themselves. the choice concentrates on English literature and literary feedback, and in addition displays Scrutiny's good fortune, from the Nineteen Thirties to the Nineteen Fifties, in commenting at the vital writers of the time. quantity I starts with a suite of reviews through Mrs Q. D. Leavis on educational traditions. There follows a piece of experiences of T. S. Eliot, Yeats, Pound, and newer poets. sections on 'Literary tradition' and 'The Literary international' touch upon minor writers and on literary existence and associations (including Dr Leavis's celebrated 'Keynes, Spender and forex Values').

He had the right to come down on Arnold for his rhetoric about the dreaming spires and to object to his mannerisms. Stephen was the type of critic who makes no parade of personality, has no studied attitudes, whose manner consists of an absence of manner but is felt as the presence of a mature personality. He himself described his style modestly as 'short-winded and provokingly argumentative,' and says that whereas X 'can keep up a flow of eloquence' he himself cannot keep on the rhetorical level because he ' must always have some tangible remark to make'.

The same writer who will tell us all this, and doubtless with perfect truth, would probably have adopted Pope or Johnson's theory with equal confidence if he had lived in the last century. Lycidas repelled Johnson by incongruities which, from his point of view, were certainly offensive. Most modern readers, I will venture to suggest, feel the same annoyances, though they have not the courage to avow them freely...
