Pp (8),[ix]-xviii,(2),[3]-246. 8vo, light blue cloth, silver lettering to spine. "This Professor Spender's major literary study, the result of a lifetime's work and reflection. It deals critically and analjytically with the whole range of British-American cultural relations starting with Emerson and Margaret Fuller through James, Eliot and Pound down to the present. It is the story of a British Culture obsessed with its tradition, confronting an America in searchof new possibilities, and of the way in which the older society ultimately pfaes to look to the new one for sources of energy, while the new one turn s to the older one for means of stability. Hardly a major author on either side of the Atlantic is not involved in the relationship, and so, in the course of this book, Spender deals with nearly the whole of American and British literature from the nineteenth century to the present. The result is a landmark of literary criticism." (from the dj). Contents : Introduction. 1.The Immense Advantage. 2. The Spectre of Americanization. 3.
