The text betrays a profound self-consciousness about the reception which awaits it; whereby postwar reading for realism refuses to acknowledge anti-realist fantasy on its own terms, but must convert it into fantasy 'about' something else", Marina Mackay, in Pretext: Volume 1, (eds Bell and Magrs), 1999 "The aim of aesthetic criticism is to describe the art work in such a way that it cannot be confused with any other work (not an easy task) and infer from its elements the aesthetic that might generate this unique configuration", Helen Vendler, "The Music of What Happens", Harvard UP, 1988, p.2 "one cannot write properly, or even meaningfully, on an art work to which one has not responded aesthetically", Helen Vendler, "The Music of What Happens", Harvard UP, 1988, p.5 "In academic circles all evaluation is seen as a conspiracy to dominate via the articulation of criteria", Myers and Hedeen, "Unrelenting Readers", Story Line Press, 2004, p.18 "The first qualification for judging any piece of workmanship from a corkscrew to a cathedral is to know what it is - what it was intended to do and how it is meant to be used", C.

The book's essays make this case with unusually discriminating attention to biblical texts, critical treatments of these texts, theological implications of the treatments, and self-conscious historical awareness for both biblical eras and our own day.
