Index to the Collected Works of Northrop Frye - Vol. 30

Compiled by Jean O'Grady

© 2012

This final volume in the Collected Works of Northrop Frye realizes a remarkable feat: the completion of the most comprehensive, authoritative collection of writings by the celebrated literary critic, just in time for the centenary of his birth. An essential companion to the rest of the series, the index makes it easy to locate Frye's public and private views on particular subjects, writers, and critics within his published works, diaries, and notebooks.

The book is divided into two parts: the first contains all of Frye's substantial remarks on his own life, his writings, and his reputation; the second includes references to people, books, places, institutions, and topics. No mere culmination of the entries in the individual volumes, the index presents a careful re-thinking of each topic to bring out vividly the contours of Frye's thought.
