Literary Criticism, Pope to Croce

Front Cover
Wayne State University Press, 1962 - Literary Criticism - 659 pages

This volume attempts to represent European theories of poetry from Plato's time to the year 1700. Editor Allan H. Gilbert has selected writers who in their own day spoke for the future rather than the past, and those whose conceptions are of value at present, either in developing our own critical thought or in interpreting the most important literature of their own ages.
