Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"If anyone doubts that the ultimate result of applying Chomskian linguistics to literary criticism is the impoverishment of individual texts, they need only glance at Berke's analysis of tragedy. The most interesting aspect of this book is the way in which it unintentionally lays bare the rationalistic and essentialist basis of Berke's linguistics. The useful information in this
book is borrowed, unfortunately without acknowledgment, from René Girard. Aside from this, the book has little to recommend it to anyone except the truest believer." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
