Summary:
'Radical Empiricists' presents a new history of criticism in the first half of the twentieth-century, against the backdrop of the modernist crisis of meaning. It turns close reading back on itself, proposing innovative readings of the prose of five major modernist poet-critics: I.A. Richards, T.S. Eliot, William Empson, R.P. Blackmur, and Marianne Moore. For each critic, it identifies characteristic patterns of prose and techniques of reading, from annotation to parataxis.
