"Profoundly searching, yet written with grace and lucidity. A distinguished historian and critic illuminates and answers one of the major problems of literary study in a work that will become and remain a classic."--W. Jackson Bate. "Perkins writes clearly and concisely. Like Rene Wellek and M. H. Abrams, he has an admirable gift for making clear the underlying assumptions of many different writers."-- Comparative Literature.
