This book is designed to demonstrate how the study of literature can be made relevant to the practice and study of law. Each essay identifies a particular legal problem and then analyzes it in light of specific works of literature. The first essay serves as a paradigm for how literature can help unravel a difficult legal conundrum. Subsequent essays apply the works of a diverse group of authors to tackle issues ranging from the admissibility of "junk science" evidence to the proper scope of liability for sexual misconduct under laws governing seduction.
