Chris Baldick - The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Literary Terms
Oxford University Press | 2001 | ISBN: 019280118X | Pages: 304 | PDF | 8.60 MB
With over 1,000 entries, The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Literary Terms contains all of the most taxing literary terms that readers may come across. Clear and entertaining explanations are given for words such as multi-accentuality, postmodernism, and hypertext. The dictionary also provides extensive coverage of traditional drama, rhetoric, literary history, and textual criticism. This edition includes useful advice on further reading for particularly complex terms, as well as helpful pronunciation guides on over 200 terms.
Fully updated to include terms that have become prominent in literature in the last few years, from cyberpunk to antanaclasis, the Second Edition is ingeniously designed to tackle the less obvious terms that students and general readers will encounter.
