The authors discuss several literatures - particularly English, German, and Italian - and present vigorous arguments from various segments of the critical/historical spectrum. The papers, by D. W. Robertson, Jr., John Benton, W. T. H. Jackson, Charles S. Singleton, and Theodore Silverstein, are complemented by the transcript of a lively discussion."Newman, F.
