LoveHate Relations carries the subtitle English and American Sensibilities but is there, to speak only of the United States, one reigning American literary sensibility-Allen Ginsberg? Saul Bellow?-or instead a number of American sensibilities? . Throughout much of his book Spender sets up antitheses, ltivating, past/present, history/geography - and then calls one of the qualites particularly English, the other particularly American.

Stephen Spender, of course, is a shrewd essayist and a fine poet, so he immediately transcends the familiar academic . American thoughts, he wrote, were English thoughts. Today it would be as true to say that America has the advantage over Europe.
Stephen Spender, of course, is a shrewd essayist and a fine poet, so he immediately transcends the familiar academic style. Sensitivity, worldliness and wit are evident everywhere without interruption. In a relatively short space, he compresses a great deal of history on both sides of the Atlantic; the differences between the English and American sensibilities being rendered almost as a series of pensees, but with stunning continuity and flow. European thoughts are American thoughts.
I can’t find any such sanctimoniousness in the book.
