R. I. P. Frank Kermode

The great literary critic, Frank Kermode, has died, aged 90. Here is a recent interview with him. For a more in-depth discussion, see Life. After. Theory, a series of interviews with four of my favourite literary theorists/ critics: Derrida, Kermode himself, Toril Moi and Christopher Norris. For a taster of Kermode’s literary journalism, see his delightfully idiosyncratic recent essay for the LRB, ‘Eliot and the Shudder‘.
