About this Item

Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 160 pp, preface, 1. The Moral of Manner; 2. Manual of Style; 3. All Ye Know on Earth; notes. First Edition, 1963. "The author establishes some basic tools for criticism because 'without the possibility of criticism as a structure of knowledge, culture, and society with it, would be condemned to a morbid antagonism between the supercilious refined and the resentful unrefined'. These critical principles may enable the well-read layman as well as the literary researcher to respond to works of literature of widely divergent styles and allow his critical judgement to relate them to literary culture as a whole." from the jacket flap.
