Although much of the interest engendered by the Uniform Commercial Code has centered around Article 9--Secured Transactions,and although Article 9 has been described as the heart of the Code, Article 2--Sales--is half again as long, is in many ways more iconoclastic,' and has precipitated perhaps more criticism than any of the other articles of the Code. Article 2 contains some innovations which are, at least upon initial impression, startling departures from traditional concepts of sales law, and it is therefore not surprising that there has been a spate of legal literature published on various aspects of this article. Since limitations of space prohibit a section by section discussion of Article 2, and the effect thereof upon prior Tennessee law, we must necessarily limit our discussion to those areas where Article 2 departs most drastically from commonly accepted rules of sales and contract law now existing under the statutory and decisional law of Tennessee.
