With the erudition that has distinguished his lifelong study of literary criticism, Wellek considers the trends, theories, and quarrels of recent years. He continues to insist that criticism--whether written by structuralists, phenomenologists, Marxists, or the New Critics--makes judgments and also takes into account ""a common humanity that makes all art accessible to us."" He also considers the relationship between literature and linguistics and the difficulty of constructing evolutionary models for literary history.

Originally published in 1982.
