449 pp, 9 1/4" H. "Northrop Frye was one of the most influential critics of the twentieth century. His output was prodigious: his publications include thirty-eight books and monographs, nearly 300 essays and articles, and some 15 reviews and miscellaneous pieces. His reputation is international: he has been the subject of numerous books, a forthcoming biography, and thirty doctoral dissertations from universities as far-flung as Freiburg, Oxford, and Texas. With this bibliography, the massive body of work by and about Frye is now made readily accessible for the first time. More than 2500 entries are included, organized in a practical and straightforward structure. Part One, covering works by Frye, is arranged in chronological order. Part Two, which deals with secondary sources, is presented in alphabetical order. (The author) has provided ample notation for the many hundreds of entries; with the primary sources, he has quoted from Frye's own words as far as possible to illuminate the tone as well as the content."
