Subtitled ""Three Tenant Families"". This is, I suppose, what you might call a subjective sociological document; on the one hand you have a pinpoint probe of three tenant families. An exhaustive inventory of their houses -- rooms -- possessions, down to the last nail file -- clothing, itemized -- education --work, etc. In long passages termed ""inductions"" and ""images"", the author impressionizes in an undisciplined, emotional, turgid manner. Very left-winged, ultra socially conscious absorption of the share and his plight, spewed up for the few who can take it. I should think it would defeat its aim.
