MEDIA REVIEWS

"Lowenthal traces three and a half centuries of change in European societies through a close examination of classic literary representations from Spain, England, France, Germany, and Scandinavia. His argument for literature as an accurate indicator of its society rests on sensitive, alert textual criticism, deep historical familiarity, and effective use of conventional sociological concepts."

--Robert N. Wilson, Contemporary Sociology


"More single-minded than either Kenneth Burke or Edmund Wilson, Leo Lowenthal has perfected the sociological interpretation of literature in this country, raising it from a mere exercise in stocktaking (spiced, in some cases, with diatribe) to a sound normative discipline."

--Francis Golffing, The Kenyon Review
