    F. R. Leavis was the chief editor of Scrutiny , which between 1932 and 1953 had some claim on being the most influential literary journal in the English-speaking world.

    Faber & Faber 2015; US$ 16.03

    It is difficult now to imagine the shock that this book caused when it was first published in 1932.
