By: John M. Ellis

In Literature Lost, John Ellis subjects the fashionable notions that now dominate college curricula in the humanities to a careful historical and logical analysis. The result is a devastating critique and a comprehensive rebuttal of the claims made for the reigning orthodoxy.In the span of less than a generation, university humanities departments have experienced an almost unbelievable reversal of attitudes, now attacking and undermining what had previously been considered best and most worthy in the Western tradition. In a clear voice, with forceful logic, Ellis speaks out against the orthodoxy that has installed race, gender, and class perspectives at the center of college humanities curricula. .
