Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Arac, professor in graduate studies at Duke, promises to elucidate the recent history of literary criticism, which "is itself part of the history of literature." However, the bulk of his treatise presents so many critical anglesincluding discussions of Coleridge, overviews of Matthew Arnold and Walter Benjamin, and detailed introductions to the critical approaches developed by Frank Kermode and Paul de Manthat no sense of deep analysis or of clarifying synthesis emerges. Because the work is concisely written and generously documented, it can be of value to advanced students of modern literature, but its audience will be limited to specialists in the field. Francisca Goldsmith, Golden Gate Univ. Lib., San Francisco
