"What astonished me reading it this time round is the iconoclastic modernity of the novel? the sense of daring experiment . . . When this is combined with sexual overtness and a revolutionary call for the individual to achieve "Me-ness" in opposition to the nation, industry and war, we have a book that, appearing as it did in 1915, seemed genuinely disturbing." —Guardian
