This chapter discusses Lewis and Leavis, who were the dominant figures in literary study in the middle decades of the twentieth century. When set in the cultural context in which the present book was written, it is Lewis's arguments and assumptions that seem to be the more challenging and which have something to contribute to contemporary debates.

Keywords:   Lewis, Leavis, literary study, arguments, assumptions, contemporary debates
