So irritating I had to quit after the introduction and half the Franklin chapter. At least through that point, Lawrence is patronizing and smug, and offers nothing in the way of tangible analysis of his subject. This only keeps out of the fully 'pernicious' category out of respect for the fact that it dares to present American literature as actually worthy of study, not a widespread view ca. 1923.
