From Publishers Weekly
Frye (1912-1991) analyzes the Bible's imagery, narrative structure and influence upon literary classics in his tremendously rich sequel to The Great Code: The Bible and Literature . Copyright 1992 Cahners Business Information, Inc.

From Library Journal
In his introduction to The Great Code ( LJ 6/1/82), Frye promised a sequel to his work on "the Bible and literature." Here is the promised volume, though it is not an entirely new book. In Part 1, Frye restates his critical position, his structural principle: the identity of mythology and literature. In Part 2, he focuses on specific mythological themes (mountain, garden, cave, furnace) that are variations of the cosmic axis mundi image. Throughout, he demonstrates his interest in the mythological structures that inform...

Anatomy of Criticism: Four Essays
Northrup Frye
0691069999
August 2000
Textbook Paperback
·
 
Review
This is a brilliant but bristling book, an important though thoroughly controversial attempt to establish order in a disorderly field.... Mr. Frye has wit, style, audacity, immense learning, a gift for opening up new and unexpected perspectives in the study of literature.... It would be hopeless to attempt a brief summary of Mr. Frye's dazzlingly counterpointed classifications.

Book Description

Striking out at the conception of criticism as restricted to mere opinion or ritual gesture, Northrop Frye wrote this magisterial work proceeding on the assumption that criticism is a structure of thought and knowledge in its own right. In four brilliant essays on historical, ethical, archetypical, and rhetorical criticism, employing examples of world literature from ancient times to the...

Northrop Frye Unbuttoned: Wit and Wisdom from the Notebooks and Diaries

May 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Northrop Frye once wrote in one of his notebooks: I’ve always wanted to write "my own" book of pensées, not like Pascal’s but more like Anatole France’s Jardin d’Epicure or (I’ve just discovered) Connolly’s The Unquiet Grave.… The disadvantage of this project is that it can’t be planned. Elsewhere in these pages he has more thoughts along these lines: It would be wonderful to write a whole book in the discontinuous aphoristic form in which things actually come to me.… Fulfilling Frye’s own idea, editor Robert D. Denham has made apt selections from the notebooks and diaries of this revered critic. Frye’s wit and brilliance are revealed in notes on literary matters, musings on religious ideas, and aphoristic speculations on a broad range of topics. Passages that...

P. Joseph Adamson, Professor of English, McMaster University, Ontario, author of Northrop Frye: A Visionary Life
"The most important book on Frye by a single author to date."

Book Description
Even the casual reader will notice a strong preoccupation with religion in the work of Northrop Frye. In his latest book, however, the esteemed Frye scholar Robert Denham shows that it played a far greater role than has been assumed-religion was in fact central to practically everything Frye wrote. Denham's focus shifts the emphasis from Anatomy of Criticism, Frye's most famous work, and places it on those works with which Frye began and ended his career-the early Fearful Symmetry and, fifty years later, his two studies of the Bible and The Double Vision. This reevaluation is based on a close examination...


Northrop Frye on Shakespeare
Northrop Frye
0300042086
Sept 1988
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
With his latest book, Frye continues to solidify his reputation as one of the most important literary theorists and critics of the 20th century. By concentrating on a handful of Shakespeare's plays, Frye can elaborate on the theory, developed in his groundbreaking study Anatomy of Criticism , that all literature reenacts ancient myths and rituals that, though outside consciousness, still exert a powerful influence on our perception. Because Shakespeare manipulates these instinctual perceptions, he can speak to us as a voice at once in the past and the present, "not of an age, but for all time." Frye's work is completely accessible, its style crisp and engaging. Most of all, it is full of basic "good sense" about our most abused literary figure. Highly rewarding, and recommended for interested readers at all levels....

Review
...this work offers both depth and comprehensiveness with copious references to other secondary sources.Religious Studies Review

This book will be welcomed by those working across the boundaries of literary theory, mythology and theology. It also stands as a defence of Frye as a radical Christian thinker in his own right, fusing narrative with doctrine..Religion
