"The appearance of this novel was a notable event in the literary circles at that time, for two reasons. First, it was the first novel whose scene was set within its own decade. Second, it was the first novel to describe the ideological change of a petty-bourgeois intellectual who, swung by the tide of the time, goes over from educational work to the mass movement, from libertarianism to collectivism."
