en Limba Engleză Paperback – February 2003
An anthology of exemplary readings by some of the twentieth century's foremost literary critics, Close Reading presents a wide range of responses to the question at the heart of literary criticism: how best to read a text to understand its meaning. The lively introduction and the selected essays provide an overview of close reading from New Criticism through poststructuralism, including works of feminist criticism, postcolonial theory, queer theory, new historicism, and more. From a 1938 essay by John Crowe Ransom through the work of contemporary scholars, Close Reading highlights the interplay between critics-the ways they respond to and are influenced by others' works. To facilitate comparisons of methodology, the collection includes discussions of the same primary texts by scholars using different critical approaches. The essays focus on Hamlet, "Lycidas," "The Rape of the Lock," Ulysses, Invisible Man, Beloved, Jane Austen, John Keats, and Wallace Stevens and reveal not only what the contributors are reading, but also how they are reading.Frank Lentricchia and Andrew DuBois's collection is an essential tool for teaching the history and practice of close reading.Contributors. Houston Baker, Roland Barthes, Homi Bhabha, R. P. Blackmur, Cleanth Brooks, Kenneth Burke, Paul de Man, Andrew DuBois, Stanley Fish, Catherine Gallagher, Sandra Gilbert, Stephen Greenblatt, Susan Gubar, Fredric Jameson, Murray Krieger, Frank Lentricchia, Franco Moretti, John Crowe Ransom, Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, Helen Vendler

Recenzii

"This scintillating book shows that the alleged death of close reading at the hands of theory and the turn away from literary works themselves have been greatly exaggerated." -Gerald Graff, University of Illinois, Chicago"A history, a tool for teaching, a work of learned analysis, this book mediates importantly for a divided discipline, between 'formalists' and those who do 'cultural studies.' 'Close reading,' it shows, necessarily connects all serious criticism, and its argument becomes the basis for a strong pedagogy and for disciplinary rethinking."-George Levine, Rutgers University"Debating close reading means doing it. By displaying the inheritance of the greatest New Critics in many of today's greatest critics, this new anthology revives, renews, and advances the cause of literary studies. Andrew DuBois's long introduction close-reads the close readers with brilliant fidelity, insight, and wit."-Marshall Brown, University of Washington"Close Reading is an extremely valuable instrument of literary pedagogy. It recalls its readers to the ethical responsibilities as well as the aesthetic pleasures which are inextricably intertwined within their individual acts of reading."-Donald E. Pease, Dartmouth College "This is an important anthology that challenges the assumption of a radical break between formalism and the criticism that followed it. Andrew DuBois's fine introductory essay usefully fills out the history of the New Criticism, while forcing a reconsideration of some currently widespread theoretical assumptions. The thoughtfully chosen essays anthologized in Close Reading persuasively demonstrate the continuities between formalist and post-formalist criticism and, at the same time, show students the value of close and critical reading."-Suzy Anger, University of Maryland, Baltimore County"The anthology nevertheless remains suggestive of further possibilities in retrieving aspects of the critical heritage for contemporary concerns."--EUROPEAN JOURNAL OF ENGLISH STUDIES, Vol 8 No. 1, April 2004
