What Can a Lawyer Learn from Literature?


James Boyd White


University of Michigan at Ann Arbor Law School

1989

Harvard Law Review, Vol. 102, no. 8 (1989): 2014-47

Abstract:     
Judge Posner's recent book, Law and Literature: A Misunderstood Relation, has already attracted considerable attention and it is likely to attract even more. The author is a well-known judge, famous for his work in law and economics; in this book he takes the bold step of entering a field very different from that in which he established his reputation; and the book itself both reflects a wide range of reading and contains an enormous number of bibliographical references, all in support of its claim, made in the preface, to be the "first to attempt a general survey and evaluation of the field of law and literature" (p. x). As one expects of Judge Posner, he makes his case with great assiduity and skill.
