Editorial Review
He was one of the most influential American writers of the 20th century, and the six collections of his essays and reviews published between 1919 and 1927 as his *Prejudices* are among his most entertaining reading. American satirist and critic HENRY LOUIS MENCKEN (1880-1956) believed that criticism rose to the level of art when it was used as a springboard for the critic's own philosophizing on art and culture. In this Third Series of *Prejudices,* first published in 1922, he brings his unique-and uniquely witty-perspective to such essays as: • "On Being an American" • "Footnote on Criticism" • "Das Kapital" • "Star-Spangled Men" • "The Poet and His Art" • "The Nature of Liberty" • "The Novel" • "The Forward-Looker" • "Types of Men" • "The Dismal Science" • "Matters of State" • "Reflections on the Drama" • and more.
