THE greatest of Russian authors has been called also the greatest of all novelists.

' Should Married Women Work ? '
A Discussion between Dame BEATRIX LYALL ,
D.B.E., and Mrs. E. D. Simon
THE question to be dealt with in this, the third in the series of short discussions of ' Questions for Women Voters,' is one that is constantly arising nowadays and is always a subject of vehement controversy. The protagonists this evening are both women well known in public life. Dame Beatrix Lyall , who will support the view that married women should not take up paid employment, is a prominent member of the London County Council, and Mrs. Simon, who will argue that women should be free to choose for themselves, is one of the leading women speakers in the Liberal party, a strong and consistent feminist, and the wife of one of Manchester's leading citizens and its former Lord Mayor.

Professor Evans shows how in his early novels Meredith displays the great variety of his work, and discusses his idea of comedy both in his novels and in his philosophy.
