This article focuses on the book "Essays in Criticism," by E. Jordan. The collection of essays by Jordan is highly controversial; indeed his book might even be called cantakerous; for he is against all modern art, criticism and philosophy; or, rather, he denies that there is any modern art, criticism or philosophy. Professor Jordan is a Platonist who would assign to the poet a place in his Republic nearest the philosopher. Plato's philosophy is a constant motive throughout these essays and in Professor Jordan's work as a whole; but the "world" for Professor Jordan must be real in every possible sense including the simplest and most obvious.
