GLORY ROAD by Arthur Hopkins


Email this review


A symbolic book, which might be called ten parables and a moral, with a bit of satire. The ""glory road"" signifies the paths bearing men on their way. A dialogue between an old man and a youth reveals the passing scene:- people seeking and finding truth, only to destroy it in attempting to fit their pattern to other's needs; the struggle for supremacy between emotion and wisdom; strong machines out-moding strong man; the complications of government, worship, individual growth; efficiency becoming a God of the people, and so on. Not a book that will be easy to sell, so buy carefully.
