A History of Literary Criticism and Theory: From Plato to the Present
This book is a guide to the history of literary criticism from antiquity to the present day. It not only provides an overview of the major movements, figures, and texts of literary criticism, but also supplies the cultural, historical, and philosophical background which enables students to see them in context.
The organization of the book is broadly chronological. Starting with a comprehensive section on classical literary criticism, it shows how the central philosophical principles of Plato and Aristotle not only underlie their specific comments on literature, but also lay out the foundations and categories of much subsequent Western thought. Similarly, for each subsequent period, the book combines back ground information, whether on the philosophy of Locke, the history of the French Revolution, the political theories of Marx and Engels, or Freud's views on civilization withy coverage of the major figures and texts of literary-critical thought.

A history of literary criticism: from Plato to the presentUser Review - Book Verdict
This tombstone-sized book by Habib (English, Rutgers Univ.) attempts the ambitious goal of covering the history of literary criticism from antiquity to the present. But Habib is quick to state that his study is selective, omitting many feminists, deconstructionists, and certain proponents of New Historicism because there is simply not enough room to include everything. Instead, he strives to place modern literary theory within a historical context, for he believes that the past has a lot to say about what we believe today. As a result, the 20th century is not addressed until the latter half of the book. Beginning with Plato and Aristotle, Habib traces how the study of literature evolved in the West. His strength lies in his short segments, which allow readers to absorb the major thoughts of the critics and movements without being overwhelmed. While the book runs nearly 900 pages, it is easy to maneuver. All told, Habib delivers an accessible yet scholarly survey of literary criticism. Recommended for larger public and academic libraries.-Ron Ratliff, Kansas State Univ. Lib., Manhattan
