"The best criticism offers a renewal of the experience of reading. With extraordinary critical and theoretical savvy, Jeffers helps us rediscover works we have long known, rekindling the excitement of these stories of initiation [and] growth. In modern fiction the Bildungsroman replaced the quest narrative, and Jeffers refreshes our sense of the genre, the evolving apprenticeship novel from Goethe to Santayana, the relish and splendor of these stories of the quest for the self." - Robert Morgan, author of Gap Creek and Brave Enemies
"To come at once to my conclusion: this is a learned, interesting, and engagingly written book" - Jefferson Hunter
