"Questioning Keats: An Introduction to Applied Hermeneutics" proposes a new way of approaching textual analysis. Basing its ideas of language and meaning on the work of Heidegger, Gadamer, and Ricoeur, it analyzes essays on -Ode to a Nightingale- by Earl Wasserman and Cynthia Chase to show how the meaning of the textual words ostensibly being analyzed has merely been assumed - thus missing the richness of their meaning. This book will be useful in courses on critical theory, practical criticism, and Romantic poetry."
