Dos Passos: A Reassessment
by 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.”

A culture is perennially in need of renewal. A culture does not survive and prosper merely by being taken for granted; active defense is always required, and imaginative growth, too.
