The dread of the coming dehumanization, the dread of the coming silence of humanity, the dread of human suffering that proclaimed itself everywhere, this precompassion lay deep within Hofmannsthal and made him more poetic than Joyce.
— Hermann Broch

The Lord Chandos Letter states the problem of modern literature with a clarity and audacity which have surely never been surpassed.
— Stephen Spender, The New York Times
