About this book

The Educated Imagination

CBC Massey Lectures

Northrop Frye

"What good is the study of literature? Does it help us think more clearly, or feel more sensitively, or live a better life than we could without it?"

Written in the relaxed and frequently humorous style of his public lectures, this remains, of Northrop Frye's many books, perhaps the easiest introduction to his theories of literature and literary education.
