Author

John Middleton Murry

Description

This dramatic dialogue provides a kind of comical assessment of the work of the aesthetic critic, although it also contains some of Murry's later more seriously articulated preoccupations with the nature of critical judgment. Murry was himself a prominent critic and the editor for a time of the Athenaeum and was the husband of Katherine Mansfield.
