The Critical Imagination explores metaphor, imaginativeness, and criticism of the arts. James Grant critically examines the idea that art is rewarding because it involves responding imaginatively to a work. He explains the role imaginativeness plays in criticism, and goes on to examine why imaginative metaphors are so common in art criticism.

[A] very helpful resource for anyone seriously interested in art appreciation or the figurative use of language. Besides providing some of the blueprints for a fuller theory of metaphor, The Critical Imagination contains numerous small conceptual revelations capable of informing and enriching a readers encounters with art critisism. George Hull, The Philosophical Quarterly

Paisley Livingston, European Journal of Philosophy Grant's The Critical Imagination should be read carefully by anyone interested in metaphor, the aims of criticism, and the relation between the two. Grant grounds and illustrates his arguments with reference to a range of interesting examples described with acumen and finesse. His prose is extremely clear and lends caution and precision to topics about which many inflated and wayward claims have been made.

Rafael De Clercq, Australasian Journal of Philosophy The Critical Imagination is a well-organized and clearly written book that moves swiftly between abstract argumentation and concrete cases of art criticism. The arguments Grant uses are strong, and the views he defends are plausible, but controversial enough to be found interesting.

Richard Eldridge, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews Grant's convincing analyses of the role of imagination in criticism and of metaphor make this book well worth careful study. He does invaluable work in rehabilitating critical appreciation as an activity and in describing much of its structure.
