Reviews

"Following on several prominent interventions announcing the arrival of a New Formalism, this collection takes a catholic view of that movement, emphasizing an aesthetic turn, a return to formalism that cooperates with historical and contextual analysis. It recognizes craft, acknowledging the experience of practitioners. It will be widely assigned and debated." - Suzanne Keen, Washington and Lee University, USA

"This exciting collection of essays and manifesti reminds us of the "form" behind "formalism": that it engages society and history, is realized through process, and depends on transactions across the literary work. New Formalisms and Literary Theory will make you think again about both concepts." - Roland Greene, Stanford University, USA
