Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Evocative and weighty, this is not so much a book about poetry for philosophers as it is a book about philosophy for readers well acquainted with canonical French poetry." - CHOICE

"Acquisto's very useful collection helps us better appreciate the precedents behind a form of analysis that gave rise to what structuralists and poststructuralists called 'reader-response' criticism. Such criticism invites, indeed forces, readers of modern poems, including their authors, to think long and hard both about what they express as well as what they do." - Nineteenth-Century French Studies
