(In)fusion Approach is one deeply provocative example, pregnant with possibilities. Through an innovative cluster of essays, this book shows the romance that theory can bring into our interpretation of literature within the terrain of Salman Rushdie’s fiction. It challenges the conventional, the reified, and the institutional ways of thinking and evaluation, leading to a fusion and frission of critical thought and traditions of ideas. Romancing Theory, Riding Interpretation, in its border-crossed, concerted, and compelling arguments, is sure to find its niche in courses on theory, reading habits of literature, postcolonial seminars, as well as in modules of interdisciplinary studies."@en ;

   schema:reviewBody "«Asserting that theory has consequences and requires responsiveness, Ranjan Ghosh gives us a volume that persuasively demonstrates the consequences of an (in)fusion approach to literary interpretation partly through the invited responses of critics who challenge, extend, and apply this hermeneutic theory. Ghosh skillfully sets up the demonstration with a provocative introduction that explains his (in)fusion approach as a creative cross-cultural appropriation of interpretive concepts and ideational correspondences. The collected essays then enact the very cross-cultural critical engagement Ghosh advocates, as they move from theory to practice beginning with theoretical comparisons to Foucauldean reception study and ending with an array of applied readings of Salman Rushdie’s novels. Romancing Theory, Riding Interpretation definitely shows that theory is alive and well in the so-called post-theory age.» (Steven Mailloux, President’s Professor of Rhetoric, Loyola Marymount University)." ;
