    Very good as far as literary criticism goes; a key reference for my dissertation. Incidentally, the author was one of my professors at Birmingham. She was nice enough but somewhat flighty. Either she constantly forgot things or was a persevering procrsatinator. It sort of gave me a glimmer of hope that I might one day be able to teach in spite of my constant inability to focus on the task at hand.
