Summary This work is the first history and evaluation of contemporary American critical theory within its European philosophical contexts. In the first part, Frank Lentricchia analyzes the impact on our critical thought of Frye, Stevens, Kermode, Sartre, Poulet, Heidegger, Sussure, Barthes, Lévi-Strauss, Derrida, and Foucault, among other, less central figures. In a second part, Lentricchia turns to four exemplary theorists on the American scene?Murray Krieger, E. D. Hirsch, Jr., Paul de Man, and Harold Bloom?and an analysis of their careers within the lineage established in part one. -- Publisher's website.
