First conceived to explain his reasons for writing the Makers and Finders series, for which Brooks was awarded the Pulitzer Prize, in this, one of his last wokrks, he lets loose a withering blast at those writers who failed to attain 'maturity' and at the "cult of youth" which has established a tradition of adolescence in American writing. At the same time he defines the traditions of American literature and calls out for a liberal humanism with a positive set of values
