Editorial Reviews

Review

“But these are only minor criticisms of what will be an extraordinarily helpful and reassuring book for many students.”  (Times Higher Education, 28 February 2013)

Review

"A marvelous new book with which to introduce students to the informed, intelligent and insightful criticism of films, literature, and culture. In easy-going and engaging prose, Ryan shows his readers why cultural criticism practiced well is still amongst the most important things we can - and must - do. Students will love following him as he moves from Adorno to Hawthorne to Fanny Burney to Negri - an original critical ride."
Imre Szeman, University of Alberta

“This is a smart and clearly written book that covers the whole field of criticism very well.”
Robert Scholes, Brown University
