About the Author


Sir Frank Kermode is Professor Emeritus, University of Cambridge.

Reviews


"A refreshing departure from the nasty academic jousting that often passes for a debate about the canon.... [Kermode's] reasoned advocacy is a reminder why literature and criticism are equipment for living."--Bookforum


"Most impressive and satisfying.... It addresses the heritage and the literary culture of our time with greater subtlety than any other writing I know."--Charles Rosen, Times Literary Supplement (International Books of the Year 2004)


"Kermode's wit and impressive breadth of reference make Pleasure and Change a compelling contribution to a debate that shows no sign of approaching a resolution."--Adam Smyth, Times Literary Supplement
