Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jonathan Culler (born 1944) is a class of 1966 Harvard graduate and Professor of English at Cornell University. He is an important figure of the structuralism movement of literary theory and criticism. Culler attended Harvard for his undergraduate studies, where he received a Bachelor of Arts in history and literature in 1966. After receiving a Rhodes scholarship, he attended St. John's College, Oxford University, where he earned a B. Phil in comparative literature (1968) and a D.Phil in modern languages (1972). His thesis for the B. Phil., on phenomenology and literary criticism, recorded Culler's first experiences with structuralism. The thesis explored the work of Maurice Merleau-Ponty and the criticism of the "Geneva School" using the ideas of Claude L vi-Strauss, Roland Barthes, and Ferdinand de Saussure. His D. Phil. thesis, "Structuralism: A Study in the Development of Linguistic Models and their Application to Literary Studies," formed the basis of his later prize-winning book, Structuralist Poetics. By the mid-1970s, Jonathan Culler became the voice of structuralism in America.show more
