In "The Company We Keep," Wayne C. Booth argues for the relocation of ethics to the center of our engagement with literature. But the questions he asks are not confined to morality.

And how does any reader know where to stop, once he has embarked on the hazardous and exhilarating path of rejecting "what the... View more info
