“[Riffaterre] provides lucid analyses of difficult poems by the Surrealists, Rimbaud, and nineteenth—century French poets. However, [he] also proves the versatility of his poetics by occasionally analyzing samples from Ronsard, Shakespeare, and some prose writers.”
 — Modern Language Journal

“ . . . this is a book which any dealer—in—the—text must necessarily read, and salute.”
 — World Literature Today

“Riffaterre’s readings, sometimes dealing with texts that are exceedingly resistant to interpretation, constitute a veritable gold mine.”
 — Philip Lewis
