"In 1941 Van Wyck Brooks leveled a more comprehensive indictment of literary modernism in a curious book called the Opinions of Oliver Allston. Having long since dropped out of the literary vanguard, V. W. Brooks was deep into his curmudgeon phase. Under the guise of presenting the views of his late friend Oliver Allston (actually a fictional persona for himself) , the author waxed nostalgic for the nineteenth century and before." ; Signed by Author

2 Ehrenpreis, Irvin ACTS OF IMPLICATION Suggestion and Covert Meaning in the Works of Dryden, Swift, Pope and Austen
Berkeley, CA University of California Press 1980 1st Edition; 1st Printing Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
This book is in Fine condition and has a Near Fine dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. The dust jacket is crisp and clean, with the exception of one crease to the rear flap corner. "Acts of Implication argues that the best approach to the aesthetic value of much literature of the past is by way of the deliberate meaning - implicit or explicit - that the author invites the reader to shaer. Ehrenpreis shows that subtlety and indirection do not militate against the didacticism and lucid style we usually associate with writers in the Augustan tradition."
