Advanced Introduction to Law and Literature

Peter Goodrich

Peter Goodrich presents a unique introduction to the concept of jurisliterature. Highlighting how lawyers have been extraordinarily productive of literary, artistic and political works, Goodrich explores the diversity and imagination of the law and literature tradition. Jurisliterature, he argues, is the source of legal invention and the sign of novelty in judgments.

Acclaim for Advanced Introduction to Law and Literature:

‘Goodrich’s pataphysical introduction to jurisliterature illuminates analysis of ordinary legal cases with a fascinating insight into the real touch of madness present in the resolution of every case. From unexplored or forgotten elements of Western Legal Tradition the book’s acrobatic journey into the Republic of Lawyers and Judges moves towards the theatrical jurisprudence that the evolving world of the media is now imposing in unseen and unpredictable forms.’

– Paolo Heritier, University of Turin, Italy
