Описание: Crome Yellow is in the tradition of the English country house novel, as practised by Thomas Love Peacock, in which a diverse group of characters descend upon an estate to leech off the host. They spend most of their time eating, drinking, and holding forth on their personal intellectual conceits. There is little plot development.The book satirically describes a number of 'types' of the period. The house party is viewed largely through the eyes of the na ve young poet Denis Stone. Denis is enamored of Anne Wimbush, who seems more interested in the artist Gombauld. The quiet and hard-of-hearing Jenny often hides behind her red journal. Mary, decisive and yet na ve, decides to embark on an amorous adventure. Mr. Wimbush, the owner of Crome, has been writing a history of the house and its family, of which excerpts are given. His wife is obsessed with spiritualism. Other characters include the pompous literary hack Mr. Barbecue-Smith, the cynical Mr. Scogan (who has elements of Bertrand Russell and of Norman Douglas), the libertine Ivor Lombard, and the ascetic and melancholy Vicar and his wife. 1]The novel contains an unflattering portrait of the ageing H. H. Asquith, former prime minister and still leader of the opposition at the time, thinly disguised as Mr. Callamay, "a ci-devant Prime Minister feebly toddling across the lawn after any pretty girl". The novel mentions his "Roman profile", and also that young women were reluctant to go on car journeys alone with him. 2]

Eliot used to gather and write.The book contains a brief pre-figuring of Huxley's later novel, Brave New World. Mr. Scogan, one of the characters, describes an "impersonal generation" of the future that will "take the place of Nature's hideous system. In vast state incubators, rows upon rows of gravid bottles will supply the world with the population it requires. The family system will disappear; society, sapped at its very base, will have to find new foundations; and Eros, beautifully and irresponsibly free, will flit like a gay butterfly from flower to flower through a sunlit world."

Описание: In "Leda," Aldous Huxley is back in the old smooth, mythological world, consecrated by a thousand poets. He pays occasional tribute to ugly fact in the course of this poem, but he is at home while describing Leda with her maids bathing in Eurotas, her shining body, and the clear deep pools The modern terror of the too-perfect world makes him dwell longer, and more humorously, than his predecessors would have done, upon Jove tossing on his Olympian couch, tortured by his continence, and sending the searchlight of his glowing eye traveling over the earth below to find some object worthy of his god-like lust....There is imaginative intensity in the poet's description of the effects of that burning, searching eye-beam, traveling over the world; and listen, the verse, too, is fine: Like a beam of light, His intent glances touch the mountain heightWith passing flame and probe the valleys deep, Rift the dense forest and the age-old sleep.But the beings that beam reveals are far from pleasing to the god, until it lights on Leda; other disgusting or insipid creatures offer the poet opportunities for paying passing homage to the ugly; for descriptions in which his morose delectation can revel, not only of scenes in whichDryads with star-flowers in their woolly hairDance to the flaccid clapping of their ownBlack dangling dugs through forests overgrown, but descriptions of flowers, carrying suggestions, in the manner of Huysmans, of loathsome, terrifying, fleshly diseases. Then the clouds of morbid morphology clear away and the blue heaven of Lempri re, Keats, and Chapman is once more above us. The description of Jove's descent as a swan from heaven, pursued in sport by Venus in the form of an eagle, is magnificent in movement. The sailing, swift approach of the swan towards her is equally fine, and the close of the poem, which reminds one of Hero and Leander in its sensual rapture: Closer he nestled, mingling with the slimAusterity of virginal flank and limbHis curved and florid beauty, till she feltThat downy warmth strike through her flesh and melt.* * * * *In the centre of the book the reader will come across a preface, composed of separate reflections, in which the poet's aims and perplexities are obscurely set forth; where by means of an irritatingly allusive and imaged prose, for which Mallarme's Divagations are a precedent, he asks himself what the task of the poet is. The first answer is: 'Let us abandon ourselves to Time, which is beauty's essence' - that is to say, dwell pensively on the imperfection and the passing of happiness and all beautiful things....What, then, is the common measure, he asks? What is true poetry? He replies in a series of metaphors: 'It is not the far-fetched, dear-bought gem; no pomander to be smelt only when the crowd becomes too stinkingly insistent.' He wants poets to be 'rather a rosy Brotherhood of Common Life, eating, drinking; marrying and giving in marriage; taking and taken in adultery; reading, thinking, and when thinking fails, feeling immeasurably more subtly, sometimes perhaps creating.... Ventre terre, head in air - your centaurs are your only poets. Their hoofs strike sparks from the flints and they see both very near and immensely far.'-"The Living Age," Volume 307

Описание: THE YOUNG ARE HAVING a terrible to-do about Aldous Huxley; they flutter and buzz about his candle, without so much danger of singeing their wings as of beating each other down. His greatest endowment, says one of his appraisers, is "a gift of satire and a sort of cosmic irony superimposed upon a genuine poetic gift and a superb technique." He has caught on splendidly for a young man of twenty-five. He has four or five little books.But the other Anatole, the Anatole of burning indignation, of passionate sympathy, the valiant champion of unpopular causes - there is no trace of this in Mr. Huxley. "It is not that he does not agree that there are many undesirable aspects of life. A recurrent problem of Mr. Huxley's young men is whether they shall choose a literary career or become social reformers. Mr. Huxley has chosen a literary career - chiefly, we suspect, because he felt he would be ineffectual as a social reformer. And, having chosen, he does not mix the r les. He does not write novels to reform the world-perhaps he does not believe that novels ever do reform the world. No, the choice, in Mr. Huxley's mind, is a definite one. Literature means something bright, amusing, fantastic. Its cardinal virtue is to his credit. "Leda: and other Poems" has called forth a critic's praise as "a glorious stretch of color in Keats's most luscious vein." Then there are collections of short stories such as "Limbo," "Crome Yellow," and finally "Mortal Coils," which puts him almost with the angels. The critics use up all their highest praises before he turns twenty-seven. Perhaps it is because of the twin names of Matthew Arnold and Thomas Henry Huxley, from whom he descends, that have blinded them. They take him a little more calmly at home. "At first sight Mr. Aldous Huxley seems to be distinguished from our other young writers chiefly by his lack of earnestness," says a writer in the London Times. "He has the rest of their qualities-on the positive side a sound knowledge of literary tradition, and on the negative, a certain short-windedness. But he appears to be the least serious of a very serious group." -"The Literary Digest", Volume 74
