This series brings together the best analysis of—and commentary on—the work of one of the twentieth century's most versatile and influential language scholars. Criticism of Jakobson is as diverse as the work itself and this four-volume set collects the most provocative and insightful reflections on Jakobson's writings. It encompasses many points of view, reflecting Jakobson's wide scope as a scholar of theoretical and applied linguistics, phonology, prosody, poetics, semiotics, translation theory, psycholinguistics, literary history and criticism, and historical and descriptive linguistics.
