Oxford Handbook of Phil & Lit (Eldridge, ed.)


Anyone interested in the connections between philosophy and literature will want to check out this exciting new collection of critical essays, edited by Richard Eldridge. At something like $150, it’s clearly too expensive (and not intended) for most individual consumers, but be sure to ask for it at your library. And if you teach at a college or university, please urge your library to buy it if it hasn’t already!
