4.0 out of 5 stars My brain hurts 4 Feb. 2013
By Jay - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a required text of a literary theory course I'm taking in graduate school. Despite its brevity in length, the substance contains great depth and fully challenges the reader to the point I had to walk away in order to digest the text in chunks. This complexity will certainly challenge many readers.
