e-8 C OMPAR AT IVE L I TE R AT UR E ST UDIE S also invites a few questions about application. Just as the New Critics found perfect exemplars of poetic unity in the lyrics of William Wordsworth and John Keats, Wasser applies her ontology of difference to modernist novels that thematize fragmentation. Will Wasser’s approach work just as effectively in reading supposedly more unie fi d texts? Wasser’s ontological standpoint certainly gestures toward universal applicability, and my question here simply betrays a desire to see more examples of its interpretive potential in action. Bold, lucidly written, and intellectually invigorating, The Work of Difference revises our basic assumptions about literary works. In doing so, Wasser’s book reenergizes the study of literature and expands the pleasure it affords. taras v. mikhailiuk holds an MA from Middle Tennessee State University.
