James Huneker

James Huneker

James Huneker is a flattering analysis of the critic and author, excerpted from Mencken's book, A Book of Prefaces, originally published in 1917, fourth edition (1922). "James Gibbons Huneker, [is] the solitary Iokanaan in this tragic aesthetic wilderness, the only critic among us whose vision sweeps the whole field of beauty, and whose reports of what he sees there show any genuine gusto...If he bears a simple label, indeed, it is that of anti-Philistine."
