What People are Saying About This
Like de Man's other works, The Rhetoric of Romanticism demaning and authoritative will trouble and stimulate literary criticism, but it is engaging in an unexpected way...a challenging and historic book.
Reading Paul de Man taught a generation of American critics what critical readings might mean. His philosophic reach, his self-critical scruple, and his inventive verbal precision combined to form an inimitable but deeply influential style. This collection holds special interest for its long, chronological range....The praise that de Man granted Yeats applies equally to his own work: it constantly warns against the danger of unwarranted hopeful solutions.
