ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the book "The Go-Between," by L.P. Hartley. This fiction of Hartley, reportedly, has secured high critical and popular success in England in 1953. "The Go-Between," which was a great critical and popular success in England' last year, is his first book to appear in the U.S. It is hoped that Americans may be put off it first because this novel begins with an account of goings-on in an English private school in 1900 and because the central character is a sensitive 13-year-old who tries, with indifferent success, to act according to the dictates of a schoolboy-cum-middle class code. Hartley's central theme is the power of the imagination.
