RIP ...

... Celebrated critic Frank Kermode dies aged 90. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

  1. Although this does not qualify as a tribute to a great critic, I will this afternoon nevertheless choose the sad occasion of his passing to reread his superb little book, THE AGE OF SHAKESPEARE. It is one of Kermode's books in which the congenial, patient voice of the astute critic comes through the narrative loudly and clearly. If I were to recommend only one Kermode book to students, THE AGE OF SHAKESPEARE is the one.
