Series Co-edited by Peter Rabinowitz Hits New Milestone
Ohio State University Press recently published the 61st volume in its Theory and Interpretation of Narrative series. Professor of Comparative Literature Peter J. Rabinowitz, co-edits the series with James Phelan and Robyn Warhol.
The newest volume is Gary Weissman’s The Writer in the Well: On Misreading and Rewriting Literature. In his book, Weissman proposes a radical pedagogical approach to teaching literature, one centered on the way that writing about literature can serve as a process of interpretive discovery.
Using Ira Sher’s short story “The Man in the Well” as his primary literary example, Weisman includes numerous written analyses by his students, as well as a concluding dialogue with Sher himself.
