Description

Scheherazade

Or the Future of the English Novel

John Carruthers

Originally published in 1928

"A brilliant essay…" Daily Herald

A survey of contemporary fiction in England and America lends to the conclusion that the literary and scientific influences of the last fifty years have combined to make the novel of today predominantly analytic. The author argues that it has therefore gained in psychological subtlety, but lost its form and how this may be regained is put forward in the conclusion.
