9780340539118: A Concise Glossary of Contemporary Literary Theory

The terminology of contemporary literary theory, with its regular adoption of words from a range of different cultures, languages, academic disciplines, critical schools and theoretical approaches, is a frequent source of confusion for students. This reference book provides comprehensive coverage of important new terms that students are expected to be familiar with, together with extended entries on recent theoretical schools and approaches.
