  'he Intellectuals and the Masses'

  John Carey (formerly Merton professor of Literature at Oxford University) is something of a rare bird. He actually supports the common people against the intellectual elite in whose halls he spent his professional life. This book is a salvo against literary modernists such as D.H.Lawrence, Virginia Woolf, T.S.Eliot, and their kind. And he knows they were good writers. But he argues that they were contaminated with a fear of the masses, and a loathing of the sort of suburban existence in which many people passed their entire lives.
