Taking words from a variety of sources, and from a range of different languages and cultures, it is little wonder that contemporary literary theory poses peculiar difficulties of usage and understanding. This third edition of Hawthorn's acclaimed glossary contains a host of new terms, revises many of the previous entries (sometimes very substantially), and includes both an expanded bibliography and detailed recommendations for further reading.

"I have read this work...from cover to cover with both pleasure and profit ... the work could be usefully consulted by readers of all levels and experience"--British Journal of Aesthetics
