Summary
"This book is a sustained conversation about the nature and importance of literary interpretation. Denis Donoghue argues that we must read texts closely and imaginatively, as opposed to merely or mistakenly theorizing about them. He shows what serious reading entails by discussing texts that range from Shakespeare's plays to a novel by Cormac McCarthy."--BOOK JACKET
