Practice of Reading
Denis Donoghue. This is a sustained conversation about the nature & importance of literary interpretation. Donoghue argues that we must read texts closely & imaginatively, as opposed to merely theorizing about them. He shows what serious reading entails by discussing texts that range from Shakespeare’s plays to a novel by Cormac McCarthy. He focuses on the validity of different literary theories, on words & their performances, on the impingement of “oral” & “written” conditions of reading, & on such current forces as technology & computers that inhibit the very idea of reading. He also examines several works of literature, demonstrating what these texts have in common & how they must be differentiated through a sympathetic imaginative, & informed reading.
