9780195188561: How to Do Things with Fictions
Rezension:

Joshua Landy's captivating book, How to Do Things with Fictions, dispenses with the usual pieties about what we stand to gain from literary works. In their place, he advances a compelling theory that reveals as much about what fiction can do for us as it does about what we can do with fiction. ( Elaine Auyoung, MLN)

In his eminently readable and concise new book, Professor Landy has made an important contribution to the increasingly substantial field of literary criticism devoted to theorizing the relationship between ethics and literature. ( Patrick Fessenbecker, Journal of Literary Theory)

accessible, elegantly written ... Landy's lively discussions of Mark, Plato, Mallarme, and Samuel Beckett (not to mention French stage magician Jean Robert-Houdin and numerous other figures) are sensitive and provocative ... It is rare to read a work in which the sense comes through so fully of what it must be like to sit in the author's classroom; in this case, it is clear that Stanford students enjoy an intellectual treat, one now available to many others ... Essential. ( D.L. Patey, Choice)

[Landy's] responses to the texts are personal, lively and - in parts - spectacularly acute. He is at his best as a close reader when he is examining Mark's gospel, or discussing "the cosmic magnitude" of Mallarmé's "ses purs ongles" sonnet. ( Stephen Abell, The Guardian)
