Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
Beschreibung""The Errant Art of Moby-Dick" retrieves for all of us the errant art of critical reading, which no mere program of cynical professionalism or fashionable 'new historicism' could ever successfully practice in any genuine sense. As such, this work is a major intervention in Melville studies, American literature studies, and the culture of criticism generally."--Daniel O'Hara, Temple University
PortraitWilliam V. Spanos is Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the State University of New York, Binghamton. He is the founding editor of "boundary 2" and the author of many books, including "The End of Education" and "Heidegger and Criticism."
Pressestimmen"An exciting and important work, one that is a major contribution to Melville studies and to American cultural history. It is an eloquent and impassioned defense of theory in the face of a militant resistance to it both by traditional humanist critics and by certain New Historicists."--Edgar A. Dryden, University of Arizona
