Richards, one of the main voices of the New Critics, engaged with Jakobson's work throughout his career, particularly in writing So Much Nearer: Essays Toward a World English (1968). Roman Jakobson was an important linguist, one of the founders of Russian formalism, and a significant literary critic in his own right. An important association of two of the giants of twentieth century criticism.
