ELI MANDEL. Northrop Frye’s writing on Canadian literature has been extraordinarily influential in both criticism and poetry but, despite widespread admiration for his achievement, the nature of his influence and the character of his work continue to be controversial and unclear in certain aspects.

Eminent Northrop Frye scholar Robert D. Denham explores the connection between Frye and twelve writers who influenced his thinking but about whom he didn’t write anything expansive.

In the area of literary criticism, few books have inspired me as much as Canadian literary critic Northrop Frye's Anatomy of Criticism.[i] Northrop Frye Anatomy of Criticism: Four Essays was published by Northrop Frye in In his Polemical Introduction, Frye notes the importance of approaching literature with “a conceptual framework,”[ii] so one can uncover a literary.

Northrop Frye’s Anatomy of Criticism () introduced the archetypal approach called Myth Criticism, combining the typological interpretation of the Bible and the conception of imagination prevalent in the writings of William Blake.

Frye continued the formalist emphasis of New Criticism and its insistence on criticism as a scientific, objective and systematic discipline. Northrop Frye’s Anatomy of Criticism is a landmark of literary criticism to which I found my way via its influence on the Tolkien scholarship of Tom Shippey and Margaret Anne Doody’s superb book The True Story of the Novel.

Frye’s discussion of the function of the imagination also reminds me of the thinking of Ted Hughes and Lindsay Clarke. Frye's enormous influence derived from his insistence that literary criticism is a symbolically co-ordinated discipline that outlines the shape of the human imagination itself (photo by Andrew Danson).

The greatest contemporary influence on Canadian criticism has been the work of Northrop Frye. Although he approved of Smith's modernist taste, Frye has rehabilitated many of the important themes of romantic nationalist criticism.

Anatomy of Criticism. Frye is the most comprehensive statement of Frye’s ideas about literature and is a must-read for every Frye scholar. Frye begins by defending the need for a systematic literary criticism that does not rest on “taste” or value judgements or borrow its methodology from other disciplines or extraliterary concerns.

Book Description: More than fifty years after the publication ofAnatomy of Criticism, Northrop Frye remains one of Canada's most influential reappraisal reasserts the relevance of his work to the study of literature and illuminates its fruitful intersection with a variety of other fields, including film, cultural studies, linguistics, and feminism.

Anatomy of Criticism: Four Essays (Princeton University Press, ) is a book by Canadian literary critic and theorist, Northrop Frye, which attempts to formulate an overall view of the scope, theory, principles, and techniques of literary criticism derived exclusively from literature.

To study Canadian literature properly, one must out-grow the view that evaluation is the end of criticism, instead of its incidental by-product. If evaluation is one's guiding principle, criticism of Canadian literature would become only a debunking project, leaving it a poor naked alouette plucked of every feather of decency and dignity.
