About the Authors
  • This volume provides a thorough account of the critical tradition emerging with the modernist and avant-garde writers of the early twentieth century (Eliot, Pound, Stein, Yeats), continuing with the New Critics (Richards, Empson, Burke, Winters), and feeding into the influential work of Leavis, Trilling and others. The book provides a companion to the other twentieth-century volumes of The Cambridge History of Literary Criticism, and offers a systematic and stimulating coverage of the development of the key literary-critical movements, genres, and individual critics.

    • Comprehensive coverage of modernism and the New Criticism, including full bibliographies
    • Describes and evaluates the key movements, genres and critics
    • Unique in its emphasis on the social and institutional changes that have shaped modern criticism
