Editorial Reviews

Review


"This is a superb study, its ideas well-researched and its conclusions convincing and always provocative."--Beverly Coyle, Vassar College


"Humphries' elaboration of the literary 'fragment'--axiom, aphorism, fable, etc.--in both its pre- and post-Romantic manifestation adds an interesting and informative historical twist to our changing sense of literature's role in our moral economy."--Joseph Riddel, University of California at Los Angeles
