179 HOLBROOK, DAVID. The Quest For Love.
University of Alabama Press, University: 1965. First Edition (Unstated). h Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition. 
"In Quest for Love, Mr. Holbrook turns to the exploration of the relationship between the growth of a sense of reality and the capacity to love. He believes firmly in the civilizing influence of creative art on society, and attempts to show how Chaucer, in his Merchant's and Franklin's Tales and Shakespeare, in The Winter's Tale 'transcended . . . human imperfection' and created a vision of continuity and hope by their understanding of human love. As always in Holbrook's work, there is much that is intelligent here. He is surely right in his general condemnation of ady Chatterley's Love as a misanthropic novel, written by a man who was expressing his unconscious need to degrade women. This book makes very interesting reading. It stimulates, provokes and arouses both hostility and sympathy towards it author. It is alive." Spectator (London) Includes an Index.
