According to the d.w. blurb: "Here is brilliant, stinging ridicule of the various stereotyped cults in contemporary literature, ending with an amazing estocade of the Eros-in-spectacles-and-jaeger combinations, the love-god of modern literary journalism and of the vast, if vague, society of stereotyped literary amateurs and backscratchers, commonly known as Bloomsbury; who more or less regulate the literary journalism of the whole country".
