Dead from the Waist Down: Scholars and Scholarship in Literature and the Popular Imagination

A. D. Nuttall (Author)
Available

Description

In this erudite and entertaining book, a renowned literary critic explores the ways we have thought about scholars and scholarship through the ages. How is it, he asks, that in the nineteenth century, scholars became seen as "dead from the waist down"--anemic and servile, impotent figures of ridicule?
