Literary Life

Bates pays tribute to his literary mentor, noting especially the friendship between Garnett and Joseph Conrad. "When Edward Garnett died, suddenly, on February 19th, contemporary literature lost, in fact, an irreplaceable personality, a unique and complex temperament, ironic, independent, unselfish, tender, very lovable; and I, in common with many other young writers, lost someone to whom I already owed a debt I could never repay." In 1950 Bates devoted an entire book to Garnett (Edward Garnett). In John O'London's Weekly (March 5th 1937).
