Synopsis: Edmund Wilson's landmark work of literary criticism is now a classic study--the book that helped to establish his reputation as one of the century's foremost literary critics. The book traces the development of the French Symbolist movement and its influence on six modern writers: William Butler Yeats, James Joyce, T.S. Eliot, Gertude Stein, Marcel Proust, and Paul Valery.

Review: If great writers are hard to find, then it's safe to say great literary critics are as rare as wild white tigers who can juggle plates. Edmund Wilson (1895-1972) was one of America's most important critics, and Axel's Castle was the book that put him on the map. Few people outside graduate school read serious literary criticism, but a look into Wilson's intense thought and clear prose makes you wonder why the genre has been neglected. If you're a lover of the Modernist writers--Wilson looks specifically at Joyce, Proust, Yeats, Valery, Eliot, Stein, and Rimbaud here--then you'll enjoy Axel's Castle.
