In a dust jacket that is chipped at top of spine and top corners, short tear on back, some light scuffing. “Ariel and the Police may well be the most important work Frank Lentricchia has done thus far, combining a complex explication of the thinking of his subjects with a well-developed intellectual program of his own. His reading of Wallace Stevens is a rare example of the use of feminist theory by men, and it should be widely welcomed as such. It’s feminism lies in the essential recognition that the identity ascribed to gender is always problematical, in not being natural but cultural, and that the definition of gender is therefore at issue in even the most self-contained writing. By applying this principle to a literature usually thought to transcend political concerns, Ariel and the Police challenges not only a particular criticism but criticism in general.” Quantity Available: 1.
