"There is something refreshingly uncompromising about Beyond the Ancient Quarrel . . . [it] not only offers many rich insights into the link between literary form and philosophical configurations of reality, but also reveals how Coetzee helps us reconfigure our own post-theory era in light of earlier developments." --Marc Farrant, Times Literary Supplement
