Review

A -- Outstanding Academic Titles, 2006 "CHOICE" (01/01/2006)

"An introduction for readers new to Coetzee and a stimulus for thought to those who know his work well."

A CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title, 2006--Outstanding Academic Titles, 2006"CHOICE" (01/01/2006)

"An accessible, readable analysis of Coetzee''s oeuvre. . . . [Attridge''s] overall theoretical argument, that modernism holds some insights worth revisiting in the contemporary global context, is powerful. He provides a strong example of how we might move toward a deeper consideration of the ethical force that literature can have for both the reader and the critic."--Antonia Smith "H-Net Book Review "

"Attridge''s study is not simply a comprehensive and up-to-date discussion of Coetzee''s writing but also a compelling meditaiton on what literature is and what it does to its readers. [It] not only convinces us of the significance of Coetzee''s novels but also of the significance of Attridge as a literary critic."--Mark Libin "English Studies in Canada "

"An important milestone in the critical reception of Coetzee's ongoing "oeuvre.""--Peggy Kamuf "Year's Work in Critical and Cultural Theory " --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
