Penguin (Non-Classics) | 2000-02-01 | ISBN: 0140513639 | Djvu | 1024 pages | 4,9 Mb
The latest installment of this trusted literary companion covers all aspects of literary theory, from definitions of technical terms to characterizations of literary movements. Geared toward students, teachers, readers, and writers alike, The Penguin Dictionary of Literary Terms and Literary Theory explains critical jargon (intertextuality, aporia), schools of literary theory (structuralism, feminist criticism), literary forms (sonnet, ottava rima), and genres (elegy, pastoral) and examines artifacts, historic locales, archetypes, origins of well-known phrases, and much, much more. Scholarly, straightforward, comprehensive, and even entertaining, this is a resource that no word lover should be without.
"Some entries accomplish cameo wonders of literary history. Others are funny . . . generously and urbanely compiled." --The New York Times
