The Book History Reader by David Finkelstein,Alistair McCleery



What exactly is book history? Literature students consulting their reference libraries would be hard put to find an answer: history of the book appears nowhere in . Abrams' Glossary of Literary Terms or Margaret Drabble's Oxford Companion to English Literature. The names most ubiquitous in The Book History Reader, Roger Chartier and . McKenzie, can be found on none of the new Norton Anthology of Theory and Criticism's several thousand pages. One of the most prominent figures missing from Finkelstein and McCleery's Reader, David Scott Kastan, has riffed on New Criticism, New Historicism and New Bibliography to dub his expertise the New Boredom.
