Reviews

"One of the most daring and intellectually exciting books of the year."--Washington Post

"The great iconoclast of literary criticism."--John Sutherland, Guardian

"It's a rare literary critic who attracts so much public attention, and there's a good reason: few are as hellbent on rethinking the way we talk about literature."--Times Literary Supplement

"Moretti, a mythopoeic figure, generates around himself a dense network of folklore and apocrypha."--n+1

"Moretti is already famous in bookish circles for his data-centric approach to novels, which he graphs, maps, and charts ... if his new methods catch on, they could change the way we look at literary history."--Wired

"Distant reading might prove to be a powerful tool for studying literature."--New York Times
