"In 1941 Van Wyck Brooks leveled a more comprehensive indictment of literary modernism in a curious book called the Opinions of Oliver Allston. Having long since dropped out of the literary vanguard, V. W. Brooks was deep into his curmudgeon phase. Under the guise of presenting the views of his late friend Oliver Allston (actually a fictional persona for himself) , the author waxed nostalgic for the nineteenth century and before." ; Signed by Author
