Stanley Fish Reader by H. Aram Veeser

Book Description

In this book, Stanley Fish's critics disagree about him. He is an 'intellectual boot-boy', a 'trafficker in scurrility, effrontery, and every low rhetorical trick', 'a happy gamesman' with a 'disturbingly radical agenda'. He is a jury-rigger, a dangerous populist, an open cynic and a self-declared sophist. And he is 'the most quoted, most controversial, most in-demand and most feared English teacher in the world'. "The Stanley Fish Reader" assembles for the first time the best work of this brightest intellectual light. Essays spanning 30 years will attract anyone who has interests in Milton, the English Renaissance, law and literature, speech-act theory, Shakespeare, new pragmatism, first-amendment disputes, blind submission, rhetoric and anti-professionalism.This choice survey casts Fish's evolution into striking relief - what emerges is the transformation not of a personality but of a whole intellectual generation. The personality remains, of course, most riveting. As reported in the "TLS", 'Fish has made his living from qualities more typically associated with careers in sports or venture capital: agility, pugnacity, tenacity, opportunism, inventiveness, risk, flair'. Edited and with an introduction by H. Aram Veeser, the Reader also provides headnotes written by specialists including Joan Bennett (Milton), Jonathan Goldberg (the New Historicism), Bruce Robbins (Professionalism), Stephen Moore (poststructuralism), Judith Roof (the law), Judith Butler (free speech), and many others.
