Pp (6),vii-ix,(1),1-184,(2), frontispiece. 8vo, blue cloth, redlettering and/or background to front board and spine. "AS a poet Henry Tre ece no longer needs any introduction. But he is also a prose writer of considerable merit and the leading figure behind the Apocalyptic Movement, the only school of writing that has emerged clearly since the outbreak of war. This post-surrealist Romantic Movement which was started in 1938 expressed its belief in organic living myth, anti-mechanism and anti-totalitarianism.Treece has edited three Apocalyptic anthologies and expounded his views an d theories in various magazines. Here he has collected for the first time his critical vritings and added many new, unpublished essays. The book also contains a number of critical studies, of T. S. Eliot, Herbert Read, GerardManley Hopkins, Henry Miller, Dylan Thomas, &c, which reveal Treece yet fr om another side. Together they represent a whole philosophy, and trace and reflect the radical reorientation that has taken place in English letters."(from the dj).
