About the book:

Critics will always disagree, but, maintains Wayne Booth, their disagreement need not result in critical chaos. In Critical Understanding, Booth argues for a reasoned pluralisma criticism more various and resourceful than can be caught in any one critic's net. He relates three noted pluralistsRonald Crane, Kenneth Burke, and M. H. Abramsto various currently popular critical approaches. Throughout, Booth tests the abstractions of metacriticism against particular literary works, devoting a substantial portion of his discussion to works by W. H. Auden, Henry James, Oliver Goldsmith, and Anatole France.
