  • ASIN: Book Description Customer Reviews: Erudite musings The book is moderately curious but very overrated. Btw, the author himself doesn't pretend it is more than it is: he freely admits in the preface that his book is incomplete and, for example, cannot be taken as an exposition of his theory. It is, he says, an essay in the original meaning of this word: and incomplete attempt. Bloom tactfully but even more crisply conveys this same idea in his foreword; this, he says, is a period piece, not a timeless book, and, I quote, it "will survive because it is serious, spiritual, and comprehensive, but not because it is systematic or a manifestation of genius." Finally, whatever doubts we may still have are dispelled within the first, say, ten pages. So, what to expect here? The book is erudite, yes. Intellectually stimulating? Very much so. It'll m

    Steven Marx Cal Poly University
    Words With Power was published in 1990; it is the last of forty books of literary criticism written by its author, Northrop Frye, who died in January 1991 at the age of 78. A recent survey of 950 journals reveals that he remains the eighth most frequently cited author in the arts and humanities, among a company that includes Aristotle, Shakespeare and Freud. A bibliography of his work and and commentaries on it published in 1987 contains 2500 entries. As is suggested by this growing body of commentary, the criticism that Frye produced is not only literary but literature itself, and is likely to survive as long as some of its subjects.
    Frye started his career as a divinity student and a preacher in the United Church of Canada, but then took an M.A. in English literature at Oxford and wrote his Master's thesis on the romantic poet and painter, William Blake. His first book, published in 1947 under the title, Fearful Symmetry , revealed an original and complex mythological system of thought in the prophetic works which had previously been regarded as Blake's incomprehensible lunatic ravings. He also showed that the sources of Blake's vision could be found in a literary tradition that stemmed from the Bible and that Blake's lifelong project was to produce his own revised and updated version of the Scriptures.

    Notebook Exerpts from: Frye, Northrop. Anatomy of Criticism, Four Essays. Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1957. Archetypal Ethical Historical Rhetorical
    Polemical Introduction
    Frye, Northrop [1912- ] - Canadian literary critic, b. Quebec. In 1948 he was appointed professor of English at Victoria College, of which he later became principal [1959-66]. He is the author of FEARFUL SYMMETRY [1947], an authoritative study of William Blake's symbolism and religious mysticism, and of ANATOMY OF CRITICISM [1957], a synoptic view of the principles and techniques of literary criticism. His other major works include THE WELL-TEMPERED CRITIC [1963] and two collections of his lectures: A NATURAL PERSPECTIVE [1965] and THE MODERN CENTURY [1967]. Frye edited ROMANTICISM RECONSIDERED [1968], a collection of lectures. See study by Ronald Bates [1971]. [Harris, William H., and Judith S. Levey, eds. The New Columbia Encyclopedia. New York and London: Columbia University Press, 1975.]
    This book consists of "essays," in the word's original sense of a trial or incomplete attempt, on the possibility of a synoptic view of the scope, theory, principles, and techniques of literary criticism. The primary aim of the book is to give my reasons for believing in such a synopic view; its secondary aim is to provide a tentative version of it which will make enough sense to convince my readers that a view, of the kind that I outline, is attainable. p. 3 The gaps in the subject as treated here are too enormous for the book ever to be regarded as presenting my system, or even my theory. It is to be regarded rather as an interconnected group of suggestions which it is hoped will be of some practical use to critics and students of literature. Whatever is of no practical use to anybody is expendable. My approach is based on Matthew Arnold's precept of letting the mind play freely around a subject in which there has been much endeavor and little attempt at perspective. p. 3

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search Northrop Frye in 1984 Herman Norrie Northrop Frye CC FRSC (July 14, 1912 – January 23, 1991) was a Canadian literary critic and literary theorist , considered one of the most influential of the 20th century. Frye gained international fame with his first book, Fearful Symmetry (1947), which led to the reinterpretation of the poetry of William Blake . His lasting reputation rests principally on the theory of literary criticism that he developed in Anatomy of Criticism (1957), one of the most important works of literary theory published in the twentieth century. American critic Harold Bloom commented at the time of its publication that Anatomy established Frye as "the foremost living student of Western literature." Frye's contributions to cultural and social criticism spanned a long career during which he earned widespread recognition and received many honours.

    Lecture based on The Educated Imagination . A set of theories that can help us understand the age of advanced technology and simulation we are now entering.
    Northrop Frye, Simulation,
    And the Creation of a "Human World In 1964, the literary critic Northrop Frye published a short book, titled The Educated Imagination , in which he tried to summarize his ideas on the relevance of literature to life. In it, he asserted that we all find ourselves confronting a world of nature, which is oblivious to our values and desires. It is a world that is inhuman in shape, manifesting no larger intelligence or morality that we can discern. Our response to this experience, Frye said, is to turn nature into a "human world" that looks more like home. Although he expresses it somewhat differently, it is obvious from the text that he believed we create this "human world" a number of ways. One way we do so is by reconstructing our physical environment, replacing it with something of our own design. We build roads, farms, cities, and so on. Another way we do so is by producing literature, which allows us to explore alternative models of human experience. Here, instead of re-creating physical reality in our own image, we invent fictional versions of reality that let us see a vision of the world as we can imagine it and as we want it to be.* The collection of essays that follows examines what has become of our effort to create what Northrop Frye referred to as a human world as we approach the last years of the twentieth century. It describes the way we are beginning to fulfill a dream that is at least as old as civilization, by learning how to control nature or physical reality, and also create believable simulations of reality that are, in essence, new kinds of fiction.

    Macbeth Navigator Home Selected Bibliography REVIEW
    Frye, Northrop. Fools of Time:
    Studies in Shakespearean Tragedy . Canada: U of Toronto P, 1967.
    Contents: Ruminations on the nature of tragedy and kinds of tragedy. Despite the sub-title, Shakespearean tragedy is not really the primary focus of the book; there's a great deal about myth, Greek tragedy, Shakespeare's history plays, and the tragedy of Shakespeare's contemporaries. And much of the book is devoted to categorizing and classifying kinds of tragic plots and characters. Evaluation: Frye is a renowned literary scholar whom I respect, but I don't feel that his arguments deepened my understanding of Shakespeare's work. One reason may be that Frye doesn't offer an extended examination of any one play or character. Instead he is constantly comparing and categorizing. Here's a sample paragraph which happens to mention Macbeth: In each of Shakespeare's three social tragedies, Julius Caesar, Macbeth, and Hamlet, we have a tragic action based on three main character-groups. First is the order-figure: Julius Caesar in that play; Duncan in Macbeth;
