Winters has long been written-off as a literary critic, though he influenced many of the greatest writers and thinkers of his era. The ripples are still around, though far-flung and dwindling. Still, it's bracing to see this literary lion writing in the old-school style - trenchantly, passionately, uncompromisingly. One does not agree with all his verdicts, inevitably, but it's good to be reminded that English scholars once commanded tone and diction. And respect.
