Product description

Review

"Presents straightforward explications that illuminate the works...Offers insights into Pope's poetry." -- "Library Journal"

"Places the poems in the light of deconstruction and, in the reading of 'Duniciad IV, ' places deconstruction in the light of Pope. The book is a delight to re-read." -- "Choice"

"Deconstruction has become famous for the opacity of its prose and ideas. Atkins goes a long way towards clarifying that opacity.... Moreover, he does all of this in really quite lucid prose, something which the French tradition of the many important continental deconstructionists seems to preclude." -- "Choice"

"Both in sytle and in content, this is a remarkable book. "Reading Deconstruction/Deconstructive Reading" is extraordinarily concise, but for the purpose of precise communication, not obfuscation or opaqueness." -- "Review"
