KIRKUS REVIEW

Not an easy book; the subject is abstruse and Murry's peregrinations make it yet more difficult. He attempts to reveal ""the actual growth of the modern world through the minds of some of the great men who experienced in act and imagination the travail of its becoming."" He has chosen Chaucer, Montaigne, Shakespeare, Cromwell, Milton, Rousseau, Goethe, Godwin, Shelley, Morris and Marx. His approach is controversial and esoteric, but it reveals tremendous background, great insight, an unusual mind.
