Books By Author Geoffrey Galt Harpham
Humanities and the Dream of America, Paperback (March 2011)
Argues that the humanities - the academic disciplines that study the potential of the human - represent a 'dream of America.' This title explores a number of linked problems: the role, at once inspiring and disturbing, played by modern philology in the discipline's formation; and, the reasons behind the humanities' perpetual state of crisis.
Character of Criticism, Hardback (August 2006)
Argues that the most powerful and effective criticism demands to be read as an expression of a distinctive sensibility, a way of being in the world, it demands, in other words, to be read as a discourse of character. This work unfolds the complex and indirect ways in which human character is expressed in criticism.
Language Alone, Hardback (February 2003)
This is an accessible guide to the ways in which critical discourses from deconstruction to feminism to linguistics have made use of the scientific and philosophical ideal of 'language itself'.
