Literary Inquiry Today, Part 1 of 2

Annette Kolodny offers some answers to questions about literature and criticism. Does literature matter in everyday life? Beyond issues in formal education, how do literary creation and criticism relate to concerns and questions in politics and popular culture? By way of discussing the evolution of the American literary canon and the changing methods of literary criticism, Kolodny comments on her own feminist literary perspectives.

At the time of this interview, Kolodny was professor of literature at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

This edition of Soundings was conducted by Wayne J. Pond.
