"Following in the tradition of the great theory collections of the 1980s and '90s, Critique and Postcritique takes a generous, ecumenical, and evenhanded look at a major turn in the practice of critique. By tracing this turn and offering affirmative examples of postcritical reading, there is little doubt as to this volume's timeliness, relevance, and broad interest in the questions it raises." — Stephen M. Best, author of, The Fugitive's Properties: Law and the Poetics of Possession
“Taking up the most fundamental aspirations and methods in the field, Critique and Postcritique is an important, provocative, and timely volume. It resists onesidedness in order to engage a range of thoughtful responses, providing readers with a great deal to think with here at this moment of methodological upheaval. Critique and Postcritique will be of enormous value and significance across literary and cultural studies.” — Caroline Levine, author of, Forms: Whole, Rhythm, Hierarchy, Network
