Irascibility in Love with Love

September 1955
New Republic;9/12/55, Vol. 133 Issue 11, p16
The article discusses the book "The Genius and the Goddess," by Aldous Huxley. It is the book of a man who puts a good question, who believes that the answer cannot be adequately phrased, but that the answer is with oneself. The curious thing in this novel is the hatred the scientist-genius is supposed to provoke and does provoke in the author. It is only the children in the story who are treated with care. The reader, stranded among the debris of the contemporary novel's self-consciousness, is likely to have put more upon a new book by the author than mere expectations.
