From the cover: “This is a book which sets out to discover the right critical attitudes towards literature, based on the author’s belief that, in its proper condition, criticism should be ‘agnostic, existentialist, republican’. Professor Leech believes that, while no critic can claim a definitive status for his judgements, his ultimate concern is with judgement, not classification into types. The first essay, The Servants Will Do That For Us, takes a stand against the view that the ‘maker’ is primarily concerned with communication. The other essays, most of them dealing with the drama, discuss phenomena which either recur in literature or are associated with a particular place and period.
