Description: In this lecture, Professor Paul Fry explores the origins of formalist literary criticism.

The idea of autonomous art is explored in the writings of, among others, Kant, Coleridge, and Wilde. Using the work of Wimsatt and Beardsley, lecture concludes with an examination of acceptable categories of evidence in New Criticism
