Frye Studies

Widely acknowledged as the most influential literary critic of the twentieth century, Northrop Frye (1912-1991) first gained international acclaim for his book Fearful Symmetry in 1947. In the ensuing decades, Frye revolutionized literary studies many times over, earning worldwide praise for his field-shattering reinterpretations of William Blake's poetry and his shrewd identification of metaphoric systems in the Western literary canon. This series presents historical and cultural analyses of Frye's life and contributions, including his lesser-known involvement in sociopolitical debates over the course of a long and textured career at Toronto's Victoria University.
