ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the book "Doting," by Henry Green. Green has had a long-standing subterranean reputation in the United States which came to the sure face with the publication of "Loving," a few years back. "Doting" is a novel of English upper-class life in which sharp dialogue and a strange, semispoetic narrative combine It is essentially a bedroom comedy involving a married couple, a widower friend, and two conniving teen-age girls, mixed up in situations that any self-respecting pre-Shavian dramatist would have thrown away.
