Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this second edition of Beginning Theory, the variety of approaches, theorists, and technical language is lucidly and expertly unraveled and explained, and allows readers to develop their own ideas once first principles have been grasped. Expanded and updated from the original edition first published in 1995, Peter Barry has incorporated all of the recent developments in literary theory, adding two new chapters covering the emergent Eco-criticism and the re-emerging Narratology.

Synopsis:

An introduction to literary and cultural theory for beginners. The emphasis is on allowing readers to develop their own ideas once they have grasped the basic principles. This updated edition incorporates recent developments in literary theory since the original publication in 1985.
