The Legacy of Northrop Frye

The Legacy of Northrop Frye (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


This collection of essays by scholars from a wide range of disciplines and institutions pays tribute to the richness, diversity, and significance of Northrop Frye's contributions to culture and society in Canada and around the world. Alvin Lee and Robert Denham divide the papers into four cohesive sections: 'The Double Vision: Culture, Religion, and Society, ' 'Imagined Community: Frye and Canada, ' 'The Visioned Poet in His Dreams: Frye, Romanticism, and the Modern, ' and 'Dunsinane, Birnam Wood, and Beyon Frye's Theoria of Language and Literature.' The essays consider Frye in relation to Canadian culture, examine his understanding of Romanticism and modernism, and explore and evaluate his contributions to our understanding of literature, criticism, society, and religion. In their introductions, Alvin Lee presents an overview of the central issues, and Robert Denham provides an account of Frye's international presence. The volume also includes a list of Frye's books in their various editions and translations, the libretto of a masque, a poem by Margaret Atwood, and a tribute by Julia Kristeva. As a text that celebrates the vitality and complexity of Northrop Frye as a cultural and literary critic, this book is ideal for classroom use. It is a valuable addition to the existing work on Frye, and will be of special interest to scholars of Canadian studies, literature, literary theory and criticism, and cultural and religious studies.
