A concise yet thorough discussion for advanced students
By Jonathan Culler. What is literary theory? Is there a relationship between literature and culture? What is literature? Answering these questions and more, this volume steers a clear path through a subject that is often perceived to be complex and impenetrable. Concise yet thorough, this book also outlines the ideas behind a number of different schools: deconstruction, semiotics, postcolonial theory, and structuralism, among others. Grades 11 and up.
