"This publishera s a Manifestosa series seeks to offer educated but general readers chewy presentations of contemporary ideas, and Cunningham (English language and literature, Oxford) is stellar in his honing to that theme. This book is fun, involving, and inviting as both a social book--discussion subject and an important text that graduate students and literary specialists need to consider. Library Journal "Valentine Cunninghama s sharp, amusing critical polemic" Times Literary Supplement "In the process of developing his argument and attempting to refocus critical attention on the text -- both the literary and the critical text -- and what it says, Cunningham displays an intimate knowledge of the major works of contemporary literary theory."
