Article publication date: 1 February 1929



THE scope of this article is, it should be clearly understood, confined to offering a few suggestions that may be found useful by those who desire something more than haphazard novel‐reading; no attempt will be made to discuss fiction as a wholes—to survey, for example, the numerous questions with which learned critics have dealt in tracing the experiments and evolutionary influences that have resulted in that form of literature which the word “novel” connotes for us men and women of to‐day. Nor will any appraisal of authors be attempted, though certain individual novelists will, doubtless, be specified by way of illustrating the argument which it is sought to maintain.
