Beschreibung

In this devastatingly funny classic, Frederick Crews skewers the ego-inflated pretensions of the schools and practitioners of literary criticism popular in the 1960s, including Freudians, Aristotelians, and New Critics. Modeled on the "casebooks" often used in freshman English classes at the time, "The Pooh Perplex" contains twelve essays written in different critical voices, complete with ridiculous footnotes, tongue-in-cheek "questions and study projects," and hilarious biographical notes on the contributors. This edition contains a new preface by the author that compares literary theory then and now and identifies some of the real-life critics who were spoofed in certain chapters.

Portrait

Frederick Crews is a professor emeritus of English at the University of California at Berkeley. His many books include "The Critics Bear It Away: American Fiction and the Academy," "The Random House Handbook" (currently in its sixth edition), and "Postmodern Pooh."
