Bernard Bergonzi

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the highs and lows of the academy over the years, noting that academic literary study was divided between those who saw it as inevitably involved with making judgments and those who did not. One of the conclusions made at the end of the chapter is that the book has been a commodity ever since the moment it was invented. Literary criticism is now just one more academic specialism that is produced and consumed within the academy.

Keywords:   academy, literary study, book, commodity, literary criticism, academic specialism
