Review:

'Frye in these essays is at the top of his form; they are urbane, witty, erudite, sometimes outrageous, and usually stimulate the reader most when he most disagrees with the writer's claims.' - M. H. Abrams, Cornell University

‘Frye’s Literary essays, ranging from Milton to Yeats, are informed and subtle, and his social essays are clearly humane and concerned. He is one of four or five people, in contemporary cultural studies, who need to be faced, because of the solidity and influence of their work.’ – Raymond Williams, Guardian

‘Those who are willing to concede the absurdity of approaching literature without any idea of the rules of literary activity ought to take to heart Frank Kermode’s warning that Frye "cannot be safely ignored".’ – Stephen Vizinczey, The Times

‘Everywhere there is plentiful evidence of deep thinking and close reading. He expounds, and practices, healthy doctrine: that the whole art and end of criticism is to keep your eye on the ball’ – David Williams, Daily Telegraph

‘His great quality is the sensitivity with which he surveys the whole landscape of a writer’s work.’ – Denis Donoghue, Listener
