"At final, a scrupulous and sustained--'earsighted'--study of that shadowy but important intersection of sound and feel with no which literary examining continues to be a disembodied workout. . . . Stewart immerses us brilliantly within the poststructural approach to a 'phonemic' analysis."

"Stunningly articulate. . . . along impressive exegeses of passsages from the foremost English poets, Stewart deals new and striking interpretations of the 'poetics of prose' in such novelists as Dickens, Lawrence, Joyce, and Woolf. The booklet is a journey de strength, doubtless approximately it. in my view, analyzing Voices could have not just a large yet an enduring reception."
--Hayden White, writer of Metahistory
"This is intriguing, virtuoso paintings in a playfully creative hermeneutic mode. Stewart's ear hears attention-grabbing and compelling issues, issues that have a delightfully wealthy and thematically advanced referring to a lot higher textual issues."
--Paul Fry, writer of The achieve of Criticism
"A really unique e-book. . . . the 1st paintings in years to collect linguistically educated feedback with extra philosophically orientated literary thought. The ensuing imaginative and prescient of literature is extraordinary, own, passionate, even outlandish. not just is Stewart himself and awesome stylist, yet his paintings indicates a leap forward in stylistic feedback so radical as to revitalize the full field."
--Jay Clayton, writer of Romantic imaginative and prescient and the Novel
