The Pooh Perplex, a Student Casebook
By:Frederick C. Crews
Published on 1979 by

In this devastatingly funny classic, Frederick Crews skewers the ego-inflated pretensions of the schools and practitioners of literary criticism popular in the 1960s, including Freudians, Aristotelians, and New Critics. Modeled on the |casebooks| often used in freshman English classes at the time, |The Pooh Perplex| contains twelve essays written in different critical voices, complete with ridiculous footnotes, tongue-in-cheek |questions and study projects,| and hilarious biographical notes on the contributors. This edition contains a new preface by the author that compares literary theory then and now and identifies some of the real-life critics who were spoofed in certain chapters.
