Literary scholars have united in this text, in the defence of works that have been reduced by critics to ideological elements, and ignored for what makes their writings distinct works of art. The book shows that there are methods of interpretation that can restore dignity to literature criticism.

MEDIA REVIEWS
""Beauty and the Critic" will stimulate and inform current reflection on issues central to the nature and raison d'etre of the literary disciplines and, more generally, the humanities." Paisley Livingston, McGill University"
"This is a timely collection of essays, presented just as the poststructuralist "hermeneutics of suspicion" is itself coming under suspicion. The richly diverse approaches represented here all return us, with the benefit of modern critical hindsight, to the "aesthetic question" that still lies at the heart of experiencing literature." Dwight Eddins, The University of Alabama"
