A Plea for Brilliance in LitCrit
Name a literary critic/researcher whose prose shines, please. I'm starved for brilliance of the caliber of Kitto's prose.

Current Mood: fine
Current Music: Richard Wagner -- Die Walküre [Boulez at Bayreuth]

Oh right! There was this bit posted on f2 a couple of years ago, of Lewis on 16th-century literature, right? That was good, yes.

Know any livings ones?

Re: האם שולמית הראבן נחשבת לעניין זה?

לא קראתי אותה כותבת על ספרות, אבל גם לדעתי היא כותבת מצוין.

Do you know Stanley Rosen?
He's a philosopher (I mean, he's in a philosophy department) and philologist, but he made me read Plato as literature and rethink old distinctions between philosophy and literature (the book I know is called "The Quarrel between Philosophy and Poetry"). I read him about a decade ago, but as far as I can remember, much of his influence was due to the beauty of his own prose.
