   "Before the New Criticism" by Terry Hipolito, originally appeared in Renascence 46.1 (Fall 1993), pp. 3-38, as "Owen Barfield's Poetic Diction," and is reprinted here by kind permission of the Renascence editorial board.  The essay is an attempt to place Barfield's Poetic Diction in the context of post-modern critical theory, as it then seemed to be.
