This is an important book. To set it beside Cleanth Brooks's The Well Wrought Urn (1947) is to measure the distance between the New Criticism and deconstruction. What Miller intends by his title is "the moment when a poem, or indeed any text, turns back on itself and puts its own medium in question . . . ." Miller is one of the first to achieve so sustained a work of interpretation in the wake of the work of Heidegger, de Man, and Derrida. He displays here his magisterial command of Anglo-American poetry from Romanticism through Modernism and his capacity for probing, original analysis. Further, by assimilating a large body of recent theoretical work, he has made this book representative of what post-structuralist criticism has realized so far.
