A Great Quote on Theory Sludge

This quote comes from Rebecca Newberger Goldstein, writing in the New York Times Book Review recently:

The study of literature as an art form, of its techniques for delighting and instructing, has been replaced by an amalgam of bad epistemology and worse prose that goes by many names but can be summed up as Theory.
