Abstract

It was said recently, apropos of a Library Association Conference, that the one thing that librarians never talk about when gathered together, is literature. I am not only going to talk about literature, but about an aspect of literature which is almost tabu in western society today, and which has significance only in Soviet Russia,—namely, the relationship of litera‐ture to society.
