The Critical Legacy of Irving Babbitt is an unsurpassed appreciation of a major American critic and diagnostician of the modern social order. Panichas reveals Babbitt’s criticism to be uncompromising and controversial, impelled by moral concerns and imperatives—the ultimate problems of life, literature, and thought. This work is also a useful introduction to the writings of Babbitt, the New Humanist scholar and teacher of T. S. Eliot.
