Mr. Handy examines the terms and methods of the New Critics approach to poetry, and by application of this critical method to six mod­ern works demonstrates the vitality of the formalistic method in enabling the reader to achieve a new level of awareness of the author’s ideas and emotions. The six works of fiction discussed are: Joyce, “The Dead”; Dreiser, Sister Carrie; Faulkner, As I Lay Dying; Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea; Malamud, The Fixer; and Bellow, Seize the Day.
