ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the book "The Psychological Novel 1900-1950," by Leon Edel. It is doubtful that fiction could receive a more sympathetic and perceptive treatment then Edel gives it here in this book. In page after page he peels back the superficial aspects of his protagonists named Joyce and Proust to reveal the inner living layer. The one flaw which this otherwise rich and helpful book presents concerns Edel's remark that we deal "not with the state of health of the artist but the art itself." Here he overlooks much of the body of the very fiction which he has been revealing, for he himself urged that these were strongly autobiographical.
