Purporting to be the proceedings of a forum on Pooh convened at the Modern Language Association's annual convention, this sequel of sorts to the classic send-up of literary criticism, The Pooh Perplex, brilliantly parodies the academic fads and figures that held sway at the millennium. Deconstruction, poststructuralist Marxism, new historicism, radical feminism, cultural studies, recovered-memory theory, and postcolonialism, among other methods, take their shots at the poor stuffed bear and Frederick Crews takes his well-considered, wildly funny shots at them. His aim, as ever, is true.

"Hilarious and accurate. Crews has made the punishment fit the crime." --Joan Acocella
"Frederick Crews is a Person of Very Great Brain. What he pooh-Poohs deserves it. Reading this book actually makes me grateful that I toil in the jargon-choked field of psychology instead of the impenetrably murky caverns of literary criticism. But literary criticism is luckier than psychology: it has Frederick Crews to light the way." --Carol Tavris, author of The Mismeasure of Woman
"Postmodern Pooh is an astonishing book: hilarious, deliciously cruel, and intellectually stimulating." --Denis Dutton, Editor, Arts & Letters DailyAbout the Author:
