Reader's note

A 1939 edition of Aldous Huxley's Texts and Pretexts. This is an anthology with commentaries. The introduction begins: 'An anthology compiled in mid-slump? Fiddling, you protest indignantly, while Rome burns. But perhaps Rome would not now be burning if the Romans had taken more intelligent interest in their fiddlers. We tend to think and feel in terms of the art we like; and if the art we like is bad, then our thinking and feeling will be bad. And if the thinking and feeling of most individuals composing a society is bad, is not that society a danger?' Do you agree? With many compelling arguments read on in this decorative vintage edition.
