Wilson, Edmund
May 1953
New Republic;5/11/53, Vol. 128 Issue 19, p20
The article evaluates the book "I Thought of Daisy," by Edmund Wilson. This novel was intended to be a sort of symphonic arrangement. The main theme of the novel is the relationship between the narrator and the character of the novel, Daisy. The author has produced different moods to bring out a different view point of view by shifting the elements of the situation in each of the five sections of the novel. The novel is a very schematic. The author says that by the time readers would have finished the book, they will have had enough of Daisy.
