Re: [mythsoc] Re: Phantom Tollbooth
- C.P. Snow's essays on the two cultures (there's two essays, the second
being a followup) are, as Wendell says, fairly short and very readable.
They should be found in many libraries.
I've read one of his novels. Spare yourself while you still can. The
noted critic F.R. Leavis, responding to Snow's essay, said that as a
novelist, Snow did not exist. This was an ad hominem attack that had
nothing to do with the merits of the essay's argument, but all the same,
Leavis was right.
