Concepts of criticism by René Wellek( Book )

89 editions published between 1963 and 1999 in 6 languages and held by 1,806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Provocative and penetrating, these essays attest to Mr. Wellek?s intense concern during the past two decades with the problems besetting the disciplines of literary theory, criticism, and history. Each essay accordingly sets as its goal the development of a concept that will contribute to better understanding of the literary work. Trenchant investigation of such significant critical concepts as baroque, romanticism, and realism are complemented by illuminating surveys of the current state of literary criticism and related commentaries on contemporary literary theory and scholarship. Concepts of Criticism constitutes a valuable statement of Mr. Wellek?s theoretical position. A number of the essays are published for the first time and a bibliography of Mr. Wellek?s publications is included. Ren ̌Wellek, author of A History of Modern Criticism, 1750-1950, is Sterling Professor of Comparative Literature at Yale
