Lay Bare The Roots Is not Simply a record of childhood impressions. There is a Continual exposure of Causes, whether of the growing up of the child, or of change in the village. At times the questing eye falls briefly on the sources of impulse and habit, tracing them back to the beginnings of life itself. The ultimate value of the book perhaps, is in the insight into the process of growth which it proffers through the balance between recollection and reflection, the contrast and connection revealed between the boy passionately involved in his experience and the tolerant irony of the man.
