[Said's] book is relaxed and discursive, original, immensely learned, fluently written. --John Bayley (New York Times Book Review ) This striking book...represents an imporant contribution to literary criticism as well as suggesting a new direction for criticism to take. (Publishers Weekly ) It is a pleasure to read someone who not only has studied and thought so carefully but is also beginning to substantiate, as distinct from announcing, a genuinely emergent way of thinking. --Raymond Williams (The Guardian ) The intellectual excitment of each essay and the enlightening effect of the brilliant thinking and writing of the book as a whole move the reader to the recognition of Said's major contribution to contemporary literary critical theory and practice. (English Literature in Transition ) Provocative and exacting; the essays provoke due interrogation of contemporary literary, and exact from the reader the care and conscientiousness the question at issue warrant...The book issues from a remarkably sharp intelligence, forcing us to face questions and possibilities that literary theorists on the whole prefer not even to raise. --Denis Donoghue (The New Republic ) A learned, lucid, powerful book. It speaks with a particular and moving urgency to the issues facing criticism today. --Stanley Fisher A learned, lucid, powerful book. It speaks with a particular and moving urgency to the issues facing criticism today. --Stanley Fisher --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
