Anatomy of criticism by Northrop Frye( Book )

157 editions published between 1950 and 2009 in 12 languages and held by 3,730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Striking out at the conception of criticism as restricted to mere opinion or ritual gesture, Northrop Frye wrote this magisterial work proceeding on the assumption that criticism is a structure of thought and knowledge in its own right. In four essays on historical, ethical, archetypical, and rhetorical criticism, employing examples of world literature from ancient times to the present, Frye reconceived literary criticism as a total history rather than a linear progression through time." "Literature, Frye wrote, is "the place where our imaginations find the ideal that they try to pass on to belief and action, where they find the vision which is the source of both the dignity and the joy of life." And the critical study of literature provides a basic way "to produce, out of the society we have to live in, a vision of the society we want to live in.""--Jacket

The great code : the Bible and literature by Northrop Frye( Book )

36 editions published between 1981 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 2,275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A world-renowned critic and scholar examines the continuing cultural importance of the Bible as the single most important influence in the imaginative tradition of Western art and literature. Frye rejects both dogmatic and literal interpretations while celebrating the uniqueness of the Bible as distinct from all other epics and sacred texts. His highly original analysis shows the Bible as redeeming history with a visionary poetic perspective that complements science in the understanding of man's nature."--Book cover
A natural perspective; the development of Shakespearean comedy and romance by Northrop Frye( Book )

50 editions published between 1963 and 2011 in English and held by 1,712 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In A Natural Perspective, distinguished critic Northrop Frye maintains that Shakespeare's comedy is widely misunderstood and underestimated, and that the four romances - Pericles, Cymbeline, The Winter's Tale, and The Tempest - are the inevitable culmination of the poet's career. Rather than comment only on individual plays, Frye treats the comedies as a group unified by recurrent structures, devices, and images: the storm at sea, the identical twins, the heroine disguised as a boy, the retreat into the forest, the heroine with a mysterious father

First published in 1970, this collection is made up of a selection of essays composed between 1962 and 1968, written by distinguished humanist and literary critic Northrop Frye. The book is divided into two parts: one deals largely with the contexts of literary criticism; the other offers more specific studies of literary works in roughly historical sequence. One of the essays is Frye's own elucidation of the development of his critical premises out of his early concern with the poetry of William Blake. Taken together, the essays offer a continuous and coherent argument, making a whole that

Northrop Frye's notebooks on romance by Northrop Frye( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Romance was a major theme throughout Northrop Frye's writings, and his holograph notebooks and typed notes on the subject are plentiful. These notes, written between 1944 and 1989, trace a profound evolution in his thinking over the course of time. As a young scholar, Frye insisted that romance was an expression of cultural decadence; however, in his later years, he thought of it as "the structural core of all fiction."" "The unpublished material Michael Dolzani has gathered for Northrop Frye's Notebooks on Romance shows how the pattern and conventions of romance inform the writing of history, anthropology, psychology, philosophy, and theology. While Frye is generally known for his writing on myth and Biblical scholarship, he eventually conceived of romance as the true and equal contrary to myth and scripture, a topic he explores at length in The Secular Scripture. Carefully and judiciously edited and annotated, this collection provides unique insight into Frye's published works and stresses the importance of romance in his conceptual framework."--Jacket
