About Book

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.

Book Description
Reassessing the ancestry of contemporary criticism, Jonathan Arac opens current debates over English studies to a larger understanding of cultural and political history, from romanticism through postmodernism. This work of creative scholarship enlarges our knowledge of the history of criticism while also exemplifying a new practice of writing literary history. Arac draws new lines from Wordsworth, Coleridge, Shelley, and Arnold to their modern successors and to recent developments in Marxism and poststructuralism.
