ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the book "French Fiction and American Reality," by R.L. Bruckbecker. In this book Bruckbecker writes about erroneous attitude. His version of the persistent and pernicious attitude is comparatively mild; but his version has a subtle and systematic confusion within it which his avowed motives make all the more insidious. For he speaks in friendship and good will, seeking to promote international understanding, and particularly to diminish anti-American sentiment in France. And it is this sympathy and fondness for America and for the modern American novels which makes his essay remarkable, instead of the obvious antagonism and ruthless detestation of literature of most proponents of his views, his admiration of America and devotion to literature are repeatedly affirmed.
