An Introduction to Literature Criticism and Theory
his is a new kind of book. It offers new ways of thinking about literature and about what is involved in reading critically. It is designed to be clear and accessible to those who are beginning to study literature, as well as to more advanced students. Although written with university students in mind, we dare to hope that it might also be of interest to other readers. Literary theory is an unavoidable part of studying literature and criticism. But theory – especially when it takes the form of ‘isms’ – can often be intimid-ating or else, frankly, boring. We have tried to avoid simply giving potted summaries of isms. Instead we present brief essays on a range of key critical concepts all of which have more or less familiar names. We put these concepts into practice through readings of particular literary texts. Our primary focus, in other words, is on what is powerful, complex and strange about literary works themselves. Our aim is to explain, entertain, stimulate and challenge.
