Synopsis:

Daniel R. Schwarz defines the theory and method of Anglo-American novel criticism in terms of principles he calls humanistic formalism. Because Anglo-American criticism has tended to sacrifice theory for method and philosophic inquiry for close analyses of the text, the theoretical assumptions o fits novel criticism have been neglected. Yet, based on a coherent but heterogeneous aesthetic, it has produced a body of impressive analyses of the English novel. The author shows that, beginning with James and Lubbock, critics as diverse as Forster, Leavis, Watt, Van Ghent, Kettle, and Kermode share common assumptions.

Schwarz defines the common humanistic assumption of this criticism, and one might define his perspective as that of a progressive traditionalist. While the book is a spirited defense of Anglo-American criticism, Schwarz seeks to contribute to a dialogue between Anglo-American humanistic criticism and the ideas proposed by structuralism, Marxism, and deconstruction.

Review:

"With grace and remarkable insight, Schwarz's volume bridges the gap that heretofore existed betweeen traditional critical practice and more recent schools of criticiam, such as structuralism and deconstruction."—Booklist
