Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'Questions of Influence is a major contribution to, and updating of, our understanding of the ways in which 'influence' works not only in literature but also in other art-forms, and in relationships between these. Exploring 'influence' in a newly sophisticated way, the book draws on a wide range of European writers, artists and thinkers, and showcases numerous talented critics working at the cutting edge of their fields. It will be indispensable both for those working on the individual figures who form the case studies of the book and for those who want to re-conceptualise the slippery concept of influence and the lateral, as well as direct, modes in which it operates. Each chapter is beautifully presented and lucidly argued, and the whole book demonstrates remarkable intellectual versatility and originality.' - Alison Finch, University of Cambridge, UK.
