Full text: The little review (8 (1922), 2)

Four Books which we believe readers of 
will wish to read 
RAHAB will undoubtedly be attacked by the 
critical descendants of those who reviled Walt 
Whitman and by those who heard nothing but 
dissonances in the Wagner they now acclaim as 
the master melodist. But for all this departure 
from the usual, the elemental directness of this 
simple tale, its portrayal of varied contem 
porary types and of such living issues as the 
“double standard” and the interplay in our 
society of Gentile and Jew, mean only that 
Mr. Frank has made his art of the common 
stuff of everyday American life. It is the 
sober conviction of the publishers that RAHAB 
is the peer in significance and power of 
Flaubert’s Bovary, Dostoyevsky’s The Idiot, 
Hardy’s Tess. In it the author of “Our 
America” and “The Dark Mother” reaches his 
full maturity. $2.00 
Burton Rascoe in The New York Tribune 
recommends this amazing book: 
“As being the most unusual and distinctive 
volume of poetry of the season; as being the 
second volume of a poet whom we find to be 
one of the five most interesting and original 
in America; as being a product of the most 
delicately balanced emotional and analytical 
minds we have encountered, and as containing 
a quality even more rare in poetry than it is 
in prose—authentic irony.” $2.00 
John V. A. Weaver, in a recent review, writes: 
“When I took up ‘The Enormous Room* I wa9 
fully prepared with smelling salts, morphine and 
sweet spirits of ammonia; any reaction might 
be expected. Any, I mean, except the one I got. 
Astounded pleasure. What on earth happened 
to Cummings ? How did he ever write what is 
to me the most interesting book the war has 
produced? I give up. But there it is 
Cummings has recorded even more horrifying 
conditions that Dos Passos. But through and 
through his story is the never-failing joshing, 
laughing, kidding, joking in the sewer, as it 
were....What a drama! Under the stress of 
confinement and misery, Cummings found some 
thing.” $2.00 
POEMS, 1918-21 
Readers of The Little Review are among the 
intelligent minority of the population of the 
United States to whom Ezra Pound appeals. To 
them he needs no introduction. Here is his 
latest volume of poetry, full of the hard-headed 
brilliance, the terror, irony and polished beauty 
that has made Ezra Pound the great international 
literary figure that he is today. $2.00
