Product description


The great iconoclast of literary criticism. --John Sutherland, Guardian

It's a rare literary critic who attracts so much public attention, and there's a good reason: few are as hellbent on rethinking the way we talk about literature --Times Literary Supplement

Moretti is already famous in bookish circles for his data-centric approach to novels, which he graphs, maps, and charts ... if his new methods catch on, they could change the way we look at literary history. --Wired

About the Author

FRANCO MORETTI teaches literature at Stanford, where he directs the Literary Lab. He is the author of Signs Taken for Wonders, The Way of the World, Modern Epic, Atlas of the European Novel 1800 - 1900, and Graphs, Maps, Trees.
