Winner of the 2013 National Book Critics Circle Award for Criticism
“The great iconoclast of literary criticism.”—John Sutherland, Guardian
“It’s a rare literary critic who attracts so much public attention, and there’s a good reason: few are as hellbent on rethinking the way we talk about literature.”—Times Literary Supplement
“Moretti, a mythopoeic figure, generates around himself a dense network of folklore and apocrypha.”—n+1
“Moretti is already famous in bookish circles for his data-centric approach to novels, which he graphs, maps, and charts ... if his new methods catch on, they could change the way we look at literary history.”—Wired
“Distant reading might prove to be a powerful tool for studying literature.”—New York Times
