Rezensionen
Named CHOICE Outstanding Title for 2012
"Perhaps only a scholar of Samuel's perspicacity could produce a work that treads familiar textual ground with such startling insight, a work that moves elegantly between its meta-critical concerns and the ingenuity of its close readings. Summing Up: Essential. All readers." (Choice, 1 October 2012)
