Pastiche and Prejudice

Book cover
By: (1855-1926)

Pastiche and Prejudice by Arthur Bingham Walkley is a fascinating exploration of the intersection between literature and culture. The author delves into the concept of pastiche, blending different literary styles and genres to create a rich tapestry of storytelling.

Walkley's exploration of prejudice is equally thought-provoking, as he examines how societal biases and stereotypes can influence our perceptions of literature and art. Through his analysis of classic works and modern interpretations, the author challenges readers to reflect on their own beliefs and assumptions.

While the book can be dense at times, Walkley's writing is clear and engaging, making complex concepts accessible to a wide audience. Overall, Pastiche and Prejudice is a compelling read that will appeal to anyone interested in the nuances of literature and culture.

Book Description:
Arthur Bingham Walkley was an exceedingly popular critic, working as a drama critic at The Times alone for no less than 26 years, and writing for several other newspapers and privately besides that. This book of pastiches was completed after he already had more than two decades of work as a theatre critic under his belt, and it draws some brilliant characterisations. Among the literary and historical figures found in the different pastiches are such illustrious figures as Aristotle and Shakespeare, but also more modern phenomena as movies are discussed, along with politicians and other famous persons of the time. - Summary by Carolin
