About this product
- DescriptionNella Cotrupi's Northrop Frye and the Poetics of Process sheds a new conceptual light on Frye, successfully bringing him back into the central ring of contemporary critical thought. Challenging the often dismissive view of Frye's work as closed and outdated, Dr. Cotrupi explores the implications of his proposition that the history of criticism may be seen as having two main approaches-literature as product and literature as process. In focusing on Frye's exploration of the process tradition Cotrupi sheds light on the agenda that Frye established for himself, when he ted at the end of Anatomy of Criticism that the reconciliatory task of criticism was to reforge the broken link between creation and kwledge, art and science, myth and concept. Dr. Cotrupi recontextualizes Frye's thought and shows us how Frye continues to be, t only relevant, but central to a number of the key concerns in the contemporary critical scene. Re-examining Frye's place in the history of critical thought, Dr. Cotrupi builds upon Frye's original vision of the process tradition and suggests further directions this exploration may take. Among the current areas of critical engagement which Cotrupi examines are relativism, possible world theory, and postmodernism--making this work of interest t only to Frye scholars, but also to those interested in the debates currently rocking the world of criticism, literature and culture.
