9780674032460: Law and Literature, Third Edition
Review:

"A book filled with keen judgment, shrewd common sense, and great erudition worn gracefully. Posner's command of his materials - literature, law, and the bodies of commentary and scholarship attached to each - is truly impressive." - Merle Rubin, Christian Science Monitor "A wonderfully original and instructive study of what literature has to teach about the law, the methods of legal argument, and the interpretation of statutes and the Constitution...Posner's adversaries are hopelessly outmatched in these arguments, but they are only supporting characters in a larger and more interesting drama - Mr. Posner's own exegesis of the relation of literature to law propounded in a series of arresting, brilliantly interwoven interpretations of dozens of literary works." - Christopher DeMuth, Wall Street Journal"

From the Publisher:

Hailed in its first edition as an 'outstanding work, as stimulating as it is intellectually distinguished' ("New York Times"), "Law and Literature" has handily lived up to the "Washington Post's" prediction that the book would 'remain essential reading for many years to come'. This third edition, extensively revised and enlarged, is the only comprehensive book-length treatment of the field. It continues to emphasize the essential differences between law and literature, which are rooted in the different social functions of legal and literary texts. But it also explores areas of mutual illumination and expands its range to include new topics such as the cruel and unusual punishments clause of the Constitution, illegal immigration, surveillance, global warming and bioterrorism, and plagiarism. In this edition, literary works from classics by Homer, Shakespeare, Milton, Dostoevsky, Melville, Kafka, and Camus to contemporary fiction by Tom Wolfe, Margaret Atwood, John Grisham, and Joyce Carol Oates come under Richard Posner's scrutiny, as does the film "The Matrix". The book remains the most clear, acute account of the intersection of law and literature.
