This contribution to St. Martin's "Case Studies in Contemporary Criticism" series offers a useful pedagogical tool for approaching one of the world's greatest stories through multiple critical perspectives. The essays, which present critical approaches from psychoanalytic, reader-response, new historicist, feminist, and deconstructive contexts, are all sound works of scholarship, which provide lucid introductions to these critical points of view as well as helpful bibliographies for further exploration. The editor's introduction supplies biographical and historical contexts to the "The Dead," and the book also includes a brief glossary of theoretical terms. Recommended for general readers, advanced undergraduates, and graduate students. R. D. Newman; Texas A&M University
