(The Crypts of Criticism Twenty interpretations of the Odyssey). The Crypts of Criticism spans the literary criticism of the twentieth century and reveals the ideologies that occupied the literary world. Each of them is illustrated by a commentary on Homer’s The
Odyssey to make the particular perspective adopted in each chapter more evident and to mitigate the lack of practical examples that most books of theory suffer from. Núria Perpinyà’s polymorphic reading of The Odyssey highlights the numerous interpretations possible in literature and, with an admirable narrative pulse, brings us closer to the passionate but often impenetrable world of literary criticism. Unlike the dry theory of text books, The Crypts of Criticism is a readable, practical and rigorous book of theory.
