ABSTRACT
The article evaluates the book "The Echoing Grove," by Rosamond Lehmann. Lehmann has been so bold as to picture the absoluteness, entirety of live--its power to consume persons and to consume itself. The domain of the novel is, yet inevitable, in human behavior-hence, the novel's concern with the nature, and the effects, of love. Scenes, incidents, radiate outward from the central factor-a man, Rickie, loved by his wife, Madeleine, has a love affair with Madeleine's sister, Dinah. Much of the strength of the novel is due to the placing-that is, to the order of the scenes and their illuminating relation to one another.
