Over the past two decades, the debate over the 'Great Books' has been one of the key public controversies concerning the cultural content of higher education. Debating the Canon provides a primary-source overview of these ongoing arguments. Many of these contributions to this debate have achieved 'canonical' status themselves; through the focus on the canon, the full spectrum of approaches to literary studies can be seen in the essays. Therefore, this collection places the recent debate within a larger context of literary criticism's development of a canon, going back to the eighteenth century.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"It would be hard for me to overestimate my enthusiasm for the extremely timely and useful book that Morrissey has put together...He has picked the best of the best-known contributions, and also strayed someway afield to bring in pieces that will enrich debate...I honestly can't think of one important piece in the canon debates that belongs in Morrissey's table of contents that he hasn't already though of." - Kevin J. H. Dettmar, Past-President, Modernist Studies Association
