Critical Theory Today

A User-Friendly Guide

This classic guide offers a thorough and accessible introduction to contemporary critical theory, providing in-depth coverage of the most common approaches to literary analysis today: feminism; psychoanalysis; Marxism; reader-response theory; New Criticism; structuralism and semiotics; deconstruction; new historical and cultural criticism; lesbian, gay, and queer theory; African American criticism; and postcolonial criticism. Chapters offer: an extended explanation of each theory, using examples from everyday life, popular culture, and literary texts; a list of specific questions critics ask about literary texts; an interpretation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby through the lens of each theory; a list of questions for further practice to guide readers in applying each theory to different literary works; a bibliography of primary and secondary works for further reading. Both engaging and rigorous, this is a "how-to" book for undergraduate and graduate students new to critical theory and for college professors who want to broaden their repertoire of critical approaches to literature.
New to this edition: A major expansion of the chapter on postcolonial criticism; An update of theoretical vocabulary throughout; Numerous substantial expansions of examples and clarifications throughout; An update of each chapter's bibliographies for further reading.
