Anti-Mimesis from Plato to Hitchcockby Tom Cohen, Anthony Cascardi, Richard Macksey
This text exposes the limitations of new historicism and neo-pragmatism through readings of Plato, Bakhtin, Poe, Whitman, and Conrad, which challenge the imposed representational models of meaning. It argues that the role of close reading has been overlooked in an era of representational criticism.
