This collection of essays, which originally appeared as a book in 1962, is virtually the complete works of an editor of Commentary magazine who died, at age 37, in 1955. Long before the rise of Cultural Studies as an academic pursuit, in the pages of the best literary magazines of the day, Robert Warshow wrote analyses of the folklore of modern life that were as sensitive and penetrating as the writings of James Agee, George Orwell, and Walter Benjamin. Some of these essays--notably "The Westerner," "The Gangster as Tragic Hero," and the pieces on the New Yorker, Mad Magazine, Arthur Miller's The Crucible, and the Rosenberg letters--are classics, once frequently anthologized but now hard to find.

I got this book because it was on a list of books I had to read for a graduate course to write a review on. If you are in a similar situation, please let me save you some time. This book is the worst. I know it looks like a good book, and you're thinking I like comic books, and movies I would enjoy hearing what someone has to say about them. This is not that book. This is a collection of bitter ramblings of Robert Warshow before his premature death. He has nothing nice to say about anyone or anything. He is supposed to be one of the great intellectuals of the 20th century but all he does is bitch and complain unendingly about every little thing.

Robert Warshow's essays are some of the finest examples of critical prose in American literature -- they range far beyond the comic book (see the cover for a good example of bad packaging), and even in essays ostensibly devoted to film, etc., a range of serious social and philosophical topics are engaged. Everything he writes is worth reading. Perhaps the only similar criticism on this level is Ariel Dorfman's The Emperor's New Clothes (his essay on the Lone Ranger is a good complement to Warshow's on The Westerner).

This edition has two very fine essays by David Denby and Lionel Trilling (Trilling's came from an earlier edition), and one irritating essay by Stanley Cavell, which, like everything Cavell has written for twenty years is all about ME ME ME ME ME, as if he were GOD. You would think he might have learned a little self-effacement from reading Warshow.

Perhaps the best thing in the book is the constant sense of tone: how to write about popular culture without being snappy and ironic -- something which has completely gone out of the armature of critics today.

These reviews writtebn by uner critic Robert Warshow are MUST reading for anyone creating, studying or critiquing pop cultue from comic books to high literature.
