THE LITERARY CRITICS
by G. Watson
published by Penguin, 1962
LIMITED TO ONE COPY ONLY, CONDITION 4/10
This is the first history of English criticism by a British scholar since Saintbury's, which is now over fifty years old. It is also highly original in approach. The author, who is a Cambridge lecturer in English, sees the development of criticism as a dynamic and uneven process. He dissociates himself from what he calls the 'Tidy School' of critical historians, which takes for granted a steady evolution of doctrine. Instead, he traces a pattern broken up by sudden disturbances. The great critics refuse to accept obsolescent critical assumptions: they interrupt the commonplace literary debates of their day with their forcefully new ideas.
