Annable Patterson's Reading Between the Lines tackles the hottest topic in literary studies today: the Great Books Debate' and the question of teaching the canon of English literature. In doing so she provides a superbly formulated moderate stance between the Western canon's radical opponents and its zealous protectors. This is the first major work to mediate successfully between neo-conservative proponents of the traditional approach to literary education, and those who insist that literature is an empty category filled only according to society's needs. Its moderation will be a welcome attribute to the debate.
