Review:
Mr. Empson...focuses on complex words because they are the most direct and valuable evidence for the understanding of our cultural tradition...The promise of the approach seems unbounded. The achievement is great not only in originality, insight, and entertainment, but in truth and substance. So great that Mr. Empson's right to be called the most distinguished critic of his generation can hardly now be questioned. -- Ian Watt "The Cambridge Review"
Synopsis:
The last of Empson's trilogy of critical works which have revolutionised critical studies by emphasising the importance of close textual readings and paying attention to individual words and phrases.
