Description

Literary Terms and Criticism has long been established as the best-selling guide to the study of English literature. It offers a comprehensive introduction to English poetry, drama and the novel, complete with practical advice and tips on how to analyse texts and how to make sense of the critical terms we employ in discussing literature. It is also the clearest and most useful of all guides to modern critical theory. There are entries on all aspects of critical thinking, ranging from traditional criticism through to postcolonialism and cultural materialism. This new edition also contains updated material, a revised further reading list and additional discussion of critical terms and approaches. In so doing, it remains the indispensable guide - providing you with the vital starting-point for whatever text you are studying, and giving you ideas you can draw on throughout your course.show more
