When I first read Fry, I was seriously impressed by his writing ability and point of view. He's an excellent art theorist, who doesn't get as much attention as he deserves. I haven't read all of this, but I had a class with the book's editor once upon a time--he was brilliant--and I really enjoyed reading Fry, with selections from this book, presented and explained very well. Would recommend.
