Falling into Theory: Conflicting Views on Reading Literature - David H. Richter

It's kind of freaking me out how on-the-nose this book is about today's literary academia and culture wars. It was published in 1994, and yet the introductory chapters sound like they were written yesterday- even down to the mention of emerging out of a recession. I know it's just the fact that the arguments this book is addressing are long-game arguments; they are not things that will change overnight, or even necessarily in a generation. Still, it's a little eerie.
