Dos Passos: A Reassessment
Richard F. Hill
In this “Best of the Bookman” essay from 1970, novelist Richard Hill offers a reappraisal of the writings of John Dos Passos, whose work always returns to “the dream of the little man, the small farmer and worker who wants to be free from centralization and tyranny.”

Page 37 of 68. ‹ First  < 35 36 37 38 39 >  Last ›

A “conservative character [is] suspicious of doctrinaire alteration, respectful toward history, preferring variety over uniformity, acknowledging a moral order composed of human persons, not of mere political and economic atoms subservient to the state.”

Russell Kirk, A Program for Conservatives, 1954
