Lionel Trilling and the critics: opposing selvesUser Review - Book Verdict
From the publication of Matthew Arnold in 1939 until his death in 1975, Lionel Trilling--Columbia professor, influential critic, and fiction writer--represented the dominant voice of left-wing cultural criticism. His nine books include such seminal works as The Liberal Imagination, The Opposing Self, Beyond Culture, and Sincerity and Authenticity. In a fascinating experiment in intellectual biography, editor Rodden (The Politics of Literary Reputation: The Making and Claiming of "St. George" Orwell) has gathered major reviews and critical responses contemporary to each of Trilling's books, including essays by Edmund Wilson, John Bayley, Norman Podhoretz, and Irving Howe. These range across the intellectual and political spectrum and offer insight into both Trilling's views and the cultural history of his times. Insightful but also simply good reading; for academic libraries.--Thomas L. Cooksey, Armstrong State Coll., Savannah, GA ...
