His Guide to Modern World Literature is an encyclopedic attempt to describe all major 20th century authors, in all languages. The book is over 1000 pages long. It has been found fascinating, eccentric, annoying and astonishing. It is notable for championing writers Seymour-Smith regarded as being under-rated (writers such as James Hanley, Laura Riding, Pio Baroja, Jose Maria Arguedas and others) and attacking those he regarded as being over-valued (such as W.H. Auden, and T.S. Eliot).
