Overview


In this delightful collection of practical essays, published in 1911, the author observes that “the fault of the epoch is the absence of meditativeness.”  He instructs us to attend to our mental state as vigorously as we do our physical health in chapters entitled “Mental Calisthenics," "Breaking with the Past" and “The Secret of Content," (when the mind acknowledges something higher than itself).  In “Marriage and Success” marriage is seen as a personal affair rather than a duty owed to the State.

Arnold Bennett (1867–1931) was a British writer whose prolific output included numerous works of fiction and nonfiction, literary criticism as well as theatre journalism, an opera, and a screenplay. English novelist Margaret Drabble says of him, “Bennett’s books I think are very fine indeed, on the highest level, deeply moving… I feel they have been underrated.”
