Authors and authority : English and American criticism, 1750-1990 by Patrick Parrinder ( Book )
18 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Authors and Authority" is a one-volume history of Anglo-American literary criticism from the neoclassical period up until recent trends in modern literary theory, feminist criticism and cultural history. Focussing on the work of major critics such as Johnson, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Arnold, Eliot, Virginia Woolf, Leavis, Frye and Lionel Trilling, Parrinder traces the connections between authorship and critical authority, and between literary debate and the changing forms of culture and society. Surveying the development that leads from the creative manifestos of the Romantic poets to the current interpretative theories of stucturalism, deconstruction and new historicism, the author asks whether there is a future for a distinctively literary criticism, and whether the gulf between creator and critic can be healed. -- Back cover

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"While walking in the Swiss Alps, two English travellers fall into a space-warp, and suddenly find themselves in another world. In many ways the same as our own - even down to the characters that inhabit it - this new planet is still somehow radically different, for the two walkers are now upon a Utopian Earth controlled by a single World Government. Here, as they soon learn, all share a common language, there is sexual, economic and racial equality, and society is ruled by socialist ideals enforced by an austere, voluntary elite: the 'Samurai'. But what will the Utopians make of these new visitors from a less perfect world?"--Back cover
