The article focuses on the anthology of thirty-five critical essays, "Critiques and Essays on Modern Fiction Theories of Fiction," selected by John W. Aldridge. The essays are grouped under headings: The Technique of Fiction; Studies in the Method of Meaning; The Mode of the Novelist. As might be expected of an adaptation for the university classroom, the book is a little constricted, and most readers of such critical essays as the ones chosen will not like to think of themselves as being thereby "exposed" to critical literature.
