KIRKUS REVIEW

A critic of mature informed judgment assesses the contribution made by twelve contemporary critics, their works and opinions, their methods, their authorities. He has chosen Wilson and the function of translation; Winters and evaluation and comparative judgment; Eliot and concern about grounding literature in tradition; Van Wyck Brooks and the biographical approach; Constance Rourke and folk background; Maud Bodkin and the psychoanalytic method; Caudwell and the Marxist approach; Caroline Spurgeon and scholarship in criticism; Blackmur and language and diction; Empoon and exploration of categories; Richards and concern with techniques; Burke and symbolic action. A learned tract for serious students.
