This study will deal with the ten novels that were winners of the Pulitzer Prize during the years 1930 - 1939 inclusive. It will attempt in each instance the character and quality of the prize-winning novel, the theme it treats, any literary or artistic tendency it may seem to indicate, the critical reception it received, and the popular favor with which it met. A brief review of each novel will be presented. This will be followed by representative excerpts from the comments of reviewers and critics, and by data to indicate the nature and extent of its popular appeal.
