The last book he completed before his death in 1984, it is his most recent since Miltons God was published in 1961. Empsons earlier books inspired American New Criticism, but unlike the New Critics Empson has always been an intentionalist. Using Biography is dramatic evidence of his fiercely held view that biographical material can help us appreciate a writers methods and intentions.

It demonstrates a shrewd understanding of human relationships as they occur, not always explicitly, in works of literature.
