Om författaren

Herman Northrop Frye was born in 1912 in Quebec, Canada. His mother educated him at home until the fourth grade. After graduating from the University of Toronto, he studied theology at Emmanuel College for several years and actually worked as a pastor before deciding he preferred the academic life. visa mer He eventually obtained his master's degree from Oxford, and taught English at the University of Toronto for more than four decades. Frye's first two books, Fearful Symmetry (1947) and Anatomy of Criticism (1957) set forth the influential literary principles upon which he continued to elaborate in his numerous later works. These include Fables of Identity: Studies in Poetic Mythology, The Well-Tempered Critic, and The Great Code: The Bible and Literature. Frye died in 1991. (Bowker Author Biography) visa färre

Allmänna fakta



I've read enough Frye by now to feel that I understood little islands of this book, but I'm afraid the greater pattern was more than a bit lost on my ignorance.

"For some of those writers she seemed to prefer look on much of what is called criticism as a hollow show of gestures and illconsidered utterances maintained partly to fulfil the petty expectations of those preoccupied with what can be safely predicted, but chiefly to provide scope for the perceptive to foresee what they know can never come about."

first essay: classification/systematization can be made use of when understood as a negative constraint against the worse kind of writing (that which is "anything and everything")

third essay: demonic archetype of a million lifeless undergraduate essays

fourth essay: an understanding of The Consolation of Philosophy as a Menippean Satire (aka 'Anatomy') does not open the text, though it allows one to heap further praise upon Joyce. Ulysses understood as possessing, "all four types: novel, romance, confession, anatomy." (money success fame glamour). Finnegan's Wake as all of the above plus the 'Encyclopedic': biblical /scriptural component and therefore even better.

Understanding of criticism as an automated process:
"Some such activity as this of reforging the broken links between creation and knowledge, art and science, myth and concept, is what I envisage for criticism. [...] I mean only that if critics go on with their own business, this will appear to be, with increasing obviousness, the social and practical result of their labors."

Erudition has its rewards:
"We can understand [Rousseau] well enough without extracting the myth, [but] there is much to be gained by extracting the myth if the myth is in fact, as we are suggesting here, the source of the coherence of his argument."

And then sometimes we are surprised by an aside:
"Kierkegaard has written a fascinating little book called Repetition, in which he proposes to use this term to replace the more traditional Platonic term anamnesis or recollection. By it he apparently means, not the simple repeating of an experience, but the recreating of it which redeems or awakens it to life, the end of the process, he says, being the apocalyptic promise: 'Behold, I make all things new.'"
