Summary

This book is deeply rooted in the views, responses, and history of contemporary critical theories. This popular book presents a user-friendly introduction to contemporary critical theories-from new criticism to cultural studies-as part of the practice of analyzing and writing about literature. The new edition has more coverage of film and other genres reflecting the growing interest in film as an academic field. There is more on current approaches to literature, including the relationship between rhetoric and reader-response criticism, Marxism, postcolonialism, queer theory, feminist theory, and African-American studies. For anyone interested in applying critical theory to writing about literature.
