Striking out at the conception of criticism as mere opinion or ritual gesture, Northrop Frye wrote this work on the assumption that criticism is a structure of thought and knowledge in its own right. In four essays on historical, ethical, archetypical, and rhetorical criticism, Frye reconceives literary criticism as a total history rather than a linear progression through time.

The primary aim of the book is to give my reasons for believing in such a synoptic view; its secondary aim is to provide a tentative version of it which will make enough sense to convince my readers that a view, of the kind that I outline, is attainable

Frye Northrop Anatomy of Criticism Four Essays 1971 . .PREFATORY STATEMENTS AND ACKNOWLEDGMENTS THIS book forced itself on me while I was trying to write some thing else, and it probably still bears the marks of the reluctance with which a great part of it was composed. After completing a study of William Blake (Fearful Symmetry, 1947), I determined to apply the principles of literary symbolism and Biblical typology which I had learned from Blake to another poet, preferably one who had taken these principles from the critical theories of his own day, instead of working them out by himself as Blake did.

The description for this book, Anatomy of Criticism, will be forthcoming.

  • A classic of literary criticism, arguably one of the most influential texts of literary criticism of the 20th century. Our Bible in graduate school.

  • i hate those dry books about popular literature, and this appears to be one until you truly come to grips with its amazingly familiar assessment of the genres of the books we read - fantasies, romance and detective stories - really ingenious once you engage with his propositions - one of the great books of literary theory

  • Articulate perfection. Gives credence and reassurance to those of us who make a life's work creating and study romantic literature.

  • Excellent to learn about literary criticism and refer to it while doing research, etc.

  • Only book that I know that creates a true theoretical model for literature. To read is like to learn a language. A professor let me borrow his copy at Vanderbilt in 1970. He said we didn't have it for a course because "It was too difficult for us", which really pissed me off. So I never gave it back. But, I read it thoroughly, over and over. I bought this most recent copy for my stepson who is a ridiculously brainy thirty year old. He is devouring it.
    You have to have a deep hunger to appreciate and endure this book, but in the end it is such a treasure.

  • Good conditions.

  • While his theories are sometimes very difficult to understand, you get a very comprehensive view of the science of literature from one of the great scholars of this century. He also does a wonderful job intertwining many other scholars into his own analysis of literature. This is a great first step for anyone beginning a journey into myth criticism.
