CARGILL, OSCAR (EDITOR).The Social Revolt: American Literature. From 1888 To 1914. The Macmillan Co., New York: April 1933. h Hardcover, no dustjacket. Very good reading copy. The period from 1888-1914 is the most diffuse in American literature. Seeking any sort of unifying element in this chaos, the editor inevitably perceived the economic struggle, with its concomitant social changes, motivating some writers and affecting nearly all.
