Description:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: - Organized around three major questions of contemporary literary studies -- why we read literature, what we read in literature courses, and how we read or interpret literary texts -- Falling into Theory gives students a clear sense of what is at stake in current debates within English departments. Selections represent a wide range of critial schools, including new historicism, feminism and gender studies, reader-response criticism, ethical criticism, and postcolonial and cultural studies.- 38 accessible scholarly selections introduce students to conflicting viewpoints on reading literature. Featuring paired essays by Helen Vendler and Gerald Graff, bell hooks and Gertrude Himmelfarb, John Guillory and Harold Bloom, the selections engage students and draw them into the discussion about these debates.- Engaging apparatus places the selections in context and points students toward topics for discussion and writing. A thorough introduction lays out the current debates in literary studies anddiscusses the social implications of these debates. Introductions to the book's three parts show how the selections (and critical schools) relate to one another. Bookseller Inventory #
