Summary

Summary

The Critical Legacy of Irving Babbitt is an unsurpassed appreciation of a major American critic & diagnostician of the modern social order. Panichas reveals Babbitt's criticism to be uncompromising & controversial, impelled by moral concerns & imperatives-the ultimate problems of life, literature, & thought. This work is also a useful introduction to the writings of Babbitt, the New Humanist scholar & teacher of T. S. Eliot.
