In Roman Jakobson Richard Bradford reasserts the value of Jakobson's work, arguing that he has a great deal to offer contemporary critical theory and providing a critical appraisal the sweep of Jakobson's career.
Bradford re-establishes Jakobson's work as vital to our understanding of the relationship between language and poetry. By exploring Jakobson's thesis that poetry is the primary object language, Roman Jakobson: Life, Language, Art offers a new reading of his work which includes the most radical elements of modernism. This book will be invaluable to students of Jakobson and to anyone interested in the development of critical theory, linguistics and stylistics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"With the 1996 centennial of his birth certain to bring renewed interest in the work of Roman Jakobson, we are fortunate to have this lucid presentation of the theory of poetics he developed over six decades, from his early work on Russian formalist and futurist poetry through the topics he discussed with Krystyna Pomorska in "Dialogues. In this book, Richard Bradford, a 'self-appointed advocate for Jakobsonian theory', not only summarizes Jakobson's major ideas on poetry and poetic language but attempts to reestablish Jakobson as a 'literary linguist' in the aftermath of the poststructuralist era in literary theory and criticism that brought serious attacks, discredit, and marginalization."
-Julia Falk, "Language, 12/95
