At War with the Word: Literary Theory and Liberal Education

R. V. Young examines the dominant trends in literary theory of the past thirty years, chronicling their effect on the teaching of literature and the imparting of a liberal education. It seeks to transcend the politicization of literature wrought by postmodern theorists and calls for a greater recognition of the role great works of literature play in developing the intellect and imagination of students.
