  • Critical Theory And The Literary Canonby E. Dean Kolbas

    Westview Press 2008; US$ 25.99

    Kolbas stakes out new territory in assessing the war over literary canon formation, a subject that contemporary polemicists have devoted much ink to. Throughout this succinct manuscript, Kolbas ranges through the sociology and politics of culture, aesthetic theory, and literary theory to develop his point that texts not only must should be situated... more...

  • Text-Körperby Lydia Bauer; Antje Wittstock

    Frank & Timme 2014; US$ 35.96

    In welcher Beziehung stehen leibliche Erfahrung und Körperdiskurs? Und wie wird diese Verknüpfung literarisch bewältigt?

Rede übergehen und mittels der Literatur imitiert oder zumindest thematisiert werden.... more...

  • Readers and Readingby Andrew Bennett

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 70.95

    Much literary criticism focuses on literary producers and their products, but an important part of such work considers the end-user, the reader. It asks such questions as: how far can the author condition the response of the reader, and how much does the reader create the meaning of a text? Dr Bennett's collection includes important essays from such... more...

  • The Dematerialisation of Karl Marxby Leonard Jackson

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 73.95

    This volume constitutes both an attack on modern left wing literary theory - the main product of the last Marxist renaissance in the past thirty years - and a defence of the one element of Marxism which, in the general collapse, modern theorists have been happiest to lose, its economic materialism. It traces Marxist theory from its beginnings in Hegelian... more...

  • Literature and The Contemporaryby Roger Luckhurst; Peter Marks

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 70.95

    At the end of the century, much criticism has become devoted to `last things': the end of history, the end of the subject, the end of the novel, the end, even, of the end. Literature and the Contemporary , in contrast, aims to provide through twelve essays evidence of the way in which the literature of the 1990s is constantly engaging in questions... more...

  • Hieroglyphicsby Arthur Machen

    The Floating Press 2014; US$ 3.99

    University of Alabama Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    There have been signs now, for some time, that poststructuralist hegemony is declining. This book helps us to understand the theoretical flaws that make this decline inevitable.                 The essays in this volume represent a collective questioning of the poststructuralist... more...

  • The Poverty of Structuralismby Leonard Jackson

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 73.95

    The Poverty of Structuralism is the first in a sequence of volumes which examine in turn the basic ideas of Saussure, Marx and Freud, and analyse the way in which they have been developed and applied to art, culture and modern textual theory. The text offers a critical introduction to the structuralist foundations of modern literary theory. It gives... more...

  • Literary Theoryby Clare Connors

    Oneworld Publications 2010; US$ 14.95

    Rescuing the subject from dry theorists and “isms?, Clare Connors considers the real questions that emerge when studying literature, such as how we find meaning and how it relates to its historical context. Using selections from works including Annie Proulx?s “Brokeback Mountain?, this unpretentious introduction highlights how enjoyable it is to think... more...
