Token Professionals and Master Critics: A Critique of Orthodoxy in Literary Studies

الغلاف الأمامي
SUNY Press, 01‏/01‏/1994 - 272 من الصفحات
This book addresses literary critics in mainstream institutions who, though they vastly outnumber their colleagues in more prestigious institutions, have little voice in the profession. It examines the structures through which the institution of literary criticism pressures its members to accept orthodoxy/heterodoxy as categories to describe their work, which in turn provokes theory wars. This opposition produces a method/ application dichotomy which renders members' pursuits scientistic.
