It has long been a very useful source of study and inspiration for the would-be writer, and though times have changed since the book was first published in 1948 many of the comments and views remain as relevant as they were at the time they were initially uttered.Allen wrote: What I have set out to do is to collect what T.S.

Eliot has called the criticism of practitioners themselves, though in many instances the word criticism is too pretentious. I have sought the writers notes on their trades, and sometimes they are merely notes, odd sentences thrown out casually in letters or in the give-and-take of conversation, though they may be none the less valuable for that.The book is divided into two parts. The first part concerns poetry, while Part 2 is related to The Novel.In the poetry section the sections include Definitions and Descriptions of Poetry- The Ends and Uses of Poetry, Inspirations and Calculation, Rhythm, Rhyme and Diction, etc.Then in Part 2 there are quotes on The Nature of the Novel, Essentials of the Novelist, the Shape and Structure of the Novel, Characters, Style, and the Novelist at Work.

Allen quotes a range of novelists, from Trollope to Hardy, Bennett to Maugham, plus Flaubert, Tolstoi and Henry James.Much good stuff in here, well worth a look eveni if you are not planning to write poetry or pen a novel!
