The Continuum encyclopedia of modern criticism and theoryUser Review - Book Verdict
This new single-volume introduction to the history of criticism in the humanities should find a welcome and useful place in most reference collections. More than 100 essays, varying in length from three to ten pages and written by experts in the various fields of criticism, are divided into three main sections. Part 1, "Critical Discourse in Europe" (the most extensive with 54 essays), begins with Descartes and Spinoza and ends with an essay by Nicholas T. Rand on French psychoanalytic literary criticism. Part 2, "Theories and Practice of Criticism in North America," begins with an excellent short essay by Kenneth Womack on Charles Sanders Peirce and semiotics and concludes with an essay by David Alderson on masculinity and cultural studies. Part 3, "Criticism, Literary and Cultural Studies in England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales," deals with the history and development of criticism and literary and cultural studies in the United Kingdom from Coleridge to British poststructuralism after 1968. The brevity of the essays generally precludes real in-depth analysis and explication of the various topics covered, but that is not the purpose of this volume, which is to provide an overview of the development of humanities criticism. To this end, it succeeds exceptionally well; editor Wolfreys (English, Univ. of Florida) is to be congratulated. Recommended for all academic and public libraries. Terry Skeats, Bishop's Univ.
