"Some of these passages have a sweep as grand as Empson found in Donne." Times Literary Supplement

"...an insightful look into Empson the thinker." Eugene R. Cunner, English Language Notes

"Anybody who cares about human intelligence at work with literature is in Haffenden's debt." Book Review Digest
