Literary Criticism

One of many tributes to J.W. Robertson Scott, founder of The Countryman, following his death in 1962. Bates refers to Scott's "undoubted masterpiece," England's Green and Pleasant Land, as becoming in the early 1930s his "bible, sitting side by side in its high place of honour with those two great masters, [W.H.] Hudson and Edward Thomas...My own writing on the countryside would never have been what it is without the combined influences of these three men." In The Countryman (London, Summer 1963, lx:2, pp. 382-383).
