Father and Son: A Study of Two Temperaments Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"This book is the record of a struggle between two temperaments, two consciences, and almost two epochs. It ended, as was inevitable, in disruption. Of the two beings here described, one was born to fly backward, the other could not help being carried forward..". Thus begins this remarkable chronicle of the division between generations. Gosse was born in 1849 into a deeply religious household; both parents were pious members of the Plymouth Brethren, a narrow sect. This book, Gosse's masterpiece, was anonymously published in 1907.

Synopsis:

"Father and Son" is the record of Gosse's struggle to "fashion his inner life for himself" - a record of whose full and subversive implications the author was unaware, as Peter Abbs notes in his introduction.
