The Stairway: By Alice A. Chown. (The Cornhill Company, Boston. 1921. Pp. 329.)

Barbara Low

The only slight interest which this eccentric book may possess for readers of this Journal is to be found in Chapter XIII. Here the authoress, in the course of her hectic soul-development, which comprises quite a number of re-births, studies under a Freudian doctor, who was a Professor in Toronto University. She expresses her gratitude to Dr. Barnes (the doctor in question) and to Freud, saying: 'Freud and Dr. Barnes gave me a new comprehension of life, of freedom and truth', an appreciation somewhat mitigated by another statement made almost in the same breath: 'I was quite content to accept Freud if I were allowed to take him in my own way'.

One had some suspicions that such was the attitude of many across the Atlantic who profess allegiance to new ideas (in a way familiar enough to us in Europe also), and this volume is a little bit of added evidence.
