About the Book

Canadian literary theorist Northrop Frye reshaped literary studies with his 1957 book Anatomy of Criticism. During his long career, Frye earned widespread recognition and honors for his contributions to cultural and social critique.
This biographical and bibliographic guide to Frye and his work includes a chronology of his life and writings, a catalog of primary and secondary materials, a list of conferences devoted to him, annotations in books in his personal library, his honorary degrees, dissertations under his direction, the application of his criticism in other disciplines, and his role in the Bodley Club as an Oxford student. Lists of books and journals dedicated to his work and of the volumes in his Collected Works complete this exhaustive compilation on one of the most influential literary critics of the 20th century.
