An Introduction to Literature, Criticism, and Theory: Key Critical Concepts
An Introduction to Literature, Criticism and Theory is an indispensable guide. In twenty-four short, compelling and highly readable chapters, this book presents the key critical concepts in literary studies today. Bennett and Royle avoid the jargonistic, abstract nature of much 'theory'. Instead they explore crucial issues in contemporary criticism and theory by focusing closely on a range of literary texts - from Chaucer to Achebe, from Milton to Morrison. This book is essential reading for students of literature and English Studies. It can also be recommended as a general introduction for students in the humanities.
