Volume I of a projected six-volume collection of Huxley's essays. Spanning the years between 1920 and 1925, it includes his essays for John Middleton Murry's Athenaeum and those on music for the New Westminster Gazette , as well as his most polished social satires. The writings range from nuanced assessments of art and architecture to political analyses, history, science, religion, and art, and a newly discovered series on music. Reflecting many of the issues and anxieties of the interwar period, Huxley's work comprises a documentary tour of Europe at the time and represents the probing skepticism of a member of the English upper middle class. Edited with commentary by Baker (English, U. of Wisconsin) and Sexton (English, Camosun College). Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
