These essays by Cleanth Brooks represent his final views on the reading of literature. They argue that the proper and essential role of literature lies in providing a sense of community. He denounces the extent to which literature is being usurped by critics who see writing as pure language.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"At a time when there is a danger that academics are neglecting--if they are not losing--the art of reading literary texts, it is especially refreshing to be reminded of the exemplary way in which Cleanth Brooks practiced this art and, through his books, transmitted it to others. No scholar-critic has played a greater role in introducing generations of students to the close analysis of poems. These essays are fine representatives of his dedication to literature."--Murray Krieger
