KIRKUS REVIEW

A critic and teacher, Professor Guerard give a comparative survey of world literature, emphasizing the importance of viewing literature as a whole, and not subdividing it into arbitrary categories. In this analysis he unifies ""the best which has been thought and said in the world"", tracing in broad outline tendencies, movements, analyzing the social, intellectual, and aesthetic standards on which great literature is judged. An impressive piece of work, but presented with the student, rather than the general reader, in view. For schools and libraries and study groups, primarily.
