Critical Theory Today: A User-friendly Guide

Framsida
Taylor & Francis, 1999 - 437 sidor
Providing in-depth coverage of the most common approaches to literary analysis, this guide can be used as the only text in a course or as a precursor to the study of primary theoretical works. It aims to motivate readers by showing them what critical theory can offer in terms of their practical understanding of literary texts and in terms of their personal understanding of themselves and the world in which they live. The text offers a how-to book for undergraduate and graduate students new to critical theory and for lecturers who want to broaden their repertoire of critical approaches to literature.
