"The Failure Of The Word is a creative, provocative, and learned work, written with style and feeling. Weisberg brings to bear on his core themes (the legalistic proclivity and resentment) a wide body of knowledge and thought in law and philosophy, literary history and theory." --Robert L. Jackson, Yale University

"An extraordinary achievement. It applies the insight and interpretative discipline of contemporary literary studies to the common thematic problems of law and literature. This book constitutes a methodological and thematic departure of significant magnitude for contemporary jurisprudence." --Robert M. Cover, Chancellor Kent Professor of Law and Legal History, Yale Law School
