Lionel Trilling and the Critics: Opposing Selves

By John Rodden | Go to book overview

For Further Reading

An excellent, comprehensive research tool for students of Lionel Trilling’s work and life is Thomas Leitch, Lionel Trilling: An Annotated Bibliography (New York: Garland, 1993). Leitch’s bibliography includes items through 1990 on Trilling, the New York intellectuals, and related topics. Accordingly, with the exception of citing the major books devoted to Trilling, this annotated selection of articles emphasizes sources either unaccountably omitted from Leitch’s volume or published since 1991.

Boyers, Robert. Lionel Trilling: Negative Capability and the Wisdom of Avoidance (Columbia: University of Missouri Press, 1977). This perceptive short monograph, which focuses on LT’s short stories and his 1948 essay on James’s Princess Casamassima (collected in LI), is the first substantial critical study of LT’s work.

Budick, Emily Miller. “Lionel Trilling and the ‘Being’ of Culture.” Massachusetts Review: A Quarterly of Literature, the Arts, and Public Affairs 35, no. 1 (spring 1994): 63–82. In LT’s essay “Wordsworth and the Rabbis” (collected in OS), both LT and Wordsworth sympathize with rabbinic Judaism, LT’s approach to Wordsworth was influenced by ideas at midcentury of American exceptionalism and high culture; his dialectical sensibility treats Wordsworth via a series of mediations between Jewish and Christian differences, secular and religious oppositions, and American and British cultures.
