Prejudices, First Series by MENCKEN, H. L.

Mencken sharpens his pen and in a collection of short essays delivers acerbic opinions on issues and persons of the time. Among his targets in this volume (the first of six) are critics, H.G. Wells Thorstein Veblen, Arnold Bennett, William Dean Howells, Irvin S. Cobb. Mencken’s critiques are delivered against a background of his own well known ethnic, racial, religious, and sectional prejudices. (It is said that the only think Mencken loved about the Southern United States was his wife, who hailed from Alabama.) Not for the faint of heart, Mencken’s prickly, yet unapologetic, prose reveals a window into American attitudes at the time they were written and their influences on the larger American culture. – Summary by DrPGould
