What do students think is the purpose of tragedy? Ralph Fox’s The Novel and the People, a pioneering effort, offered perceptive comments wittily expressed as in his remark that “Art for Art’s sake was the hopeless answer of the artist to art for money’s sake — hopeless because ivory never was a good material for fortification.” Christopher Caudwell’s Illusion and Reality, in galleys when he died in 1937, is one of the very few full length studies of lyric poetry by a marxist.
