The Continuum Encyclopedia of Modern Criticism and Theory offers the student and scholar of literary and cultural studies the most comprehensive, single volume guide to the history and development of modern criticism in the humanities. In a clearly organized format, this major reference work takes the reader through introductions to historically influential philosophers, literary critics, schools of thought and movements from Spinoza and Descartes to Phenomenology and Heidegger, before turning to its three principal areas of critical attention: Europe, North America and Great Britain. Addressing the development of literary criticism and theory within the cultural, ideological, historical and institutional parameters of their growth, the Encyclopedia provides simultaneously a stimulating introduction to theoretical engagement in the humanities, while also offering lucidly written critical interventions into current theory and criticism.>
