Abrams’ Thought Concerning Deconstruction

A quick and informative article about the life of American literary critic M.H. Abrams (includes a really short but sharp statement re: deconstruction):

Through the 1970s and 80s, he sorted through and questioned new schools of literary theory like deconstruction and theorists like Stanley Fish and Jacques Derrida, whom he found compelling but disagreed with. He adds, “I’ve been skeptical from the beginning of attempts to show that for hundreds of years people have missed the real point,” his chief quarrel with contemporary theory.
