Now is the time of Spinoza. A surge of interest in the work of
Benedict Spinoza surfaced in the second half of the twentieth
century. In disciplines spanning the humanities scholars continue to
turn their attention to the writings of this seventeenth-century
philosopher for insights into current problematics in such areas as
cultural studies, political philosophy, social theory, literary
theory and criticism, and feminist theory. Spinoza's ontology is
absolutely singular in the history of philosophy. Additionally, his
epistemology and ethics outlined in The Ethics, his hermeneutics and
prescient proto-semiotics offered in The Theologico-Political

                                Rereading the New Criticism

Commentators such as Gerald Graff and Mark Jancovich have noted that, since
the demise in the 1960s of the New Critical hegemony, contemporary critical
discourse has often promoted misunderstandings of New Critical projects.
The image of the New Criticism as ahistorical formalism, they suggest,
misrepresents the New Critics' commitment to practices and epistemologies
distinctive to literature; their engagement with social and historical
issues; and their cultural politics. These recent critiques encourage
rereading the work of the New Critics from a new perspective-one that
maintains critical distance on received ideas about their methods.
