Structuralist Poetics; Structuralism, Linguistics and the Study of Literature (Routledge Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Culler's most famous work, Structuralist Poetics has never been out of print since first publication in 1975, selling over 20,000 copies. It introduced a new way of studying literature by attempting to create a systematic account of the structure of literary works, rather than studying the meaning of the work. Culler's new preface answers some of the criticisms levelled at his approach and details how it is still as relevant today as when it was first published.

Synopsis:

A work of technical skill as well as outstanding literary merit, Structuralist Poetics was awarded the 1975 James Russell Lowell Prize of the Modern Language Association. It was during the writing of this book that Culler developed his now famous and remarkably complex theory of poetics and narrative, and while never a populariser he nonetheless makes it crystal clear within these pages.
