Review of the hardback: 'At a moment when academic literary studies are accused of having sunk to a state of savage torpor, Don H. Bialostosky's Wordsworth, Dialogics, and the Practice of Criticism is welcome evidence to the contrary. Bialostosky proceeds from the enlivening premise that Wordsworth criticism doesn't end with the texts of Wordsworth, but includes reflection on how Wordsworth and writers generally have been studied and taught in the academy.' Gerald Graff Review of the hardback: 'At once responsive to current debates and responsible to Wordsworth, Bialostosky proceeds with lucidity and discrimination to renew resources for criticism. Whether primarily concerned with theory, pedagogy, or the value of liberal education, readers will be valuably engaged by Bialostosky's dialogic.' Jonathan Arac
