       Biographical note 
       Cleanth Brooks (1906-1994), Kentucky-born author, English professor, Faulkner scholar, and
        a founder of New Criticism, was born in Murray, Kentucky. He attended Vanderbilt University,
        Tulane University, and Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar (1929-1932). Brooks is noted
        primarily for his work as a literary critic and is considered an authority on the work of
        William Faulkner. The founder and editor of  The Southern
          Review , Brooks has collaborated with Robert Penn Warren on several publications.
        Along with Warren, Brooks was a proponent of the  New
          Criticism , a modern approach to the study of literature. His works include  American Literature: The Makers and the Making  (with Robert Penn
        Warren and R. W. B. Lewis) (1973),  The Hidden God  (1963),
           Literary Criticism  (with William K. Wimsatt) (1957),  Modern Poetry and the Tradition  (1939),  A
          Shaping Joy  (1971),  Understanding Fiction  (with
        Warren) (1943),  Understanding Poetry  (with Warren) (1938),
           The Well Wrought Urn  (1947), and four books on
        Faulkner.
