What is clearly lacking is a nationwide system for comparative performance purposes, using standard formats," Mr. Miller wrote, adding that student learning was a main component that should be measured. Evanston, IL: Northwestern University Press, 1990. E-mail Citation . This work finds the demystifying critiques of post-structuralism and New Historicism wanting as pedagogies and turns instead to the evaluative vocabularies and what Altieri calls the contrastive grammar of the canon. According to Altieri, the canon offers an amplified humanism and a vital resource for the present, which offsets the narcissistic self-interest and limited contemporary perspectives.

What does our literary past offer the present? Using his grasp of the full range of contemporary philosophical and literary stances, Charles Altieri in Canons and Consequences? offers a fascinating dialogue between cultures which should influence how we understand the purposes of literary education.This book takes the debate about the canon as a crucial test case for how competing perspectives in literary theory approach the subject of values. Altieri belives that the dominant poststructural perspectives are severely flawed by their inability to project or assess idealizations. He tries to define alternative principles for making value judgments, and he finds these principles within the traditional texts and discourses preserved by a high literary canon.
