The Future of Northrop Frye: Centennial Perspectives

Guest Editors: Germaine Warkentin and Linda Hutcheon

This special issue of the UTQ celebrates the centennial of the birth of Northrop Frye in 1912. It was here that the young Frye published his first academic article in 1942. Projecting forward, not back, these essays look to the future of his ideas in the critical climate of the twenty-first century. The publication of Frye’s Collected Works has brought about a serious reconsideration of his criticism and what it might have to say to the future—and not just that of literary studies. The essays explore the Frye canon afresh to reflect on what a critic of today finds challenging, provocative, and productive in the rich record of his criticism.

This special issue contains supplemental material including the watercolour portrait of Northrop Frye, painted by Canadian artist Jeffrey Sprang, a graduate of Victoria College and one of Frye's former students. The portrait depicts Frye at the blackboard in front of his lesson The Conspectus of Genres.
