Reviews

"The strength of Todorov's . . . essay lies not so much in its originality as in the elegance and persuasiveness of its thought. His central claim is that good writing can only be achieved when the author makes room for an understanding of the world, particularly the world of human relationships. . . . Taken together, the two essays in The Limits of Art make it a treasure amongst a sea of flotsam. It is to be hoped that it will become a required text for students of art, literature and philosophy where it will go a long way to clarifying the obfuscations often found in such courses."
