"New Writing in Europe,"

"New Writing in Europe,"

In addition to this monthly "New Writing" the Pelican Books have published "New Writing in Europe' by John Tehmenn, a book which at least every student of English should possess. This brief account of recent [unclear: tends] in English and European literature gives us an informative introduction to the works of the most interesting younger writers of to-day. To those who like to visualize their favourite poet, "New Writing in Europe" should have an additional appeal for there are photographs included of such writers as E. M. Forster, T. S. Eliot, John Cornford, and Auden and also of scenes from plays such as "The Ascent of F6" and "The Star Turns Red."

Although, students may not agree with all the evolutions of John Tehmenn, "New Writing in Europe" certainly supplies a need, long felt by those wishing to know more of the trend of writing abroad. What we want now is for the same thing to be done for American writers of today.
