The ellipses that do sometimes intrude signify that the self-contained quotation does appear in the context of a longer passage that is simply too detailed or digressive to reprint. As a popular speaker and commentator, with an exceptionally active academic, administrative, and writing career, Frye was called upon to deliver hundreds of addresses, presentations, talks, commentaries, and interviews. He completed over three hundred articles and reviews, published twenty-three books, and over the decades accepted thirty-one honourary degrees.
He distinguishes four basic, pre-generic plot types — comedy, romance, tragedy, and irony, which he positions on this circle. Finally, the “Fourth Essay” discusses rhetorical criticism, in which literature is looked at according to the genres such as epic, lyric, and satire. This approach to literature was so novel and so suggestive that within a few years Frye had become the darling of North American graduate-school English departments; carrying a copy of his book was the very hallmark of the serious and up-to-date student.
In The Critical Path, subtitled “An Essay on the Social Context of Literary Criticism,” he put forth some important new conceptions of social development. According to his analysis, there is a constant dialectic in human history between the myth of concern and the myth of freedom. The myth of concern is society’s central mythology, the body of what it believes as a society and what holds it together. ) Authors, Frye says, tend to be children of concern, in that they address mankind’s enduring hopes and fears through their images of wish and nightmare, and their depiction of the business of loving, gaining a living, and facing death.
