About the Author

Frank Kermode (1919-2010) was a British literary critic who taught English literature at University College London, the University of Cambridge, Columbia University, and Harvard University. His criticism was regularly featured in the London Review of Books and the New York Review of Books, and he was the author of many books including The Sense of an Ending; The Classic; The Genesis of Secrecy; and, most recently, Concerning E. M. Forster. Kermode was knighted in 1991.

Reviews

Frank Kermode is the psalmist of literary studies. No critic celebrates more inspirationally the revelations classic literary texts hold in trust for us... An Appetite for Poetry is a fervent reminder of the glory of literature in a greedy decade whose academic critics are rewarded for abandoning their calling... [It] is a collection of essays, lectures, and reviews, but its intricate structure redeems it from the patchiness of most such collections.--Nina Auerbach "New York Times Book Review "
