Northrop Frye - Anatomy of Criticism

"outright drivel"

"Frye was a man second rate at best who bluffed the gullible with obscure complexities. For a man who never wrote a memorable poem, or a novel, or a play, it is a wonder he could ever in a logical world be seen as an expert in literature. QED."

"Fuck you Northrop Frye! You and your fucked up ways of thinking."

"Mr. Frye's book is a glorified 'Anatomy' of literary cliches. People seem still to build academic careers on this [stuff], and college teachers continue to regurgitate these 'illuminations' to their students. It boggles your mind."
