My goal with The Biblio File is to engage authors and others connected with 'the book' in variously entertaining, informative, stimulating, funny, intense conversation. If you'd like to contribute to that conversation, please email me at notabenebeale@gmail.com I'd love to hear from you.

Lionel Trilling (1905 – 1975) is one of the best known U.S. critics of the twentieth century. A Professor of Literature and Criticism at Columbia University from 1931 - 1975, his teachings focused primarily on the relationships between literature, culture and politics. His first and best known collection of essays, The Liberal Imagination, was published in 1950.

I met with David Southward, a Senior Lecturer at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee, recently in Gatineau, Quebec at the ACTC Annual Conference to discuss Trilling and his approach to literary criticism.
