Summary: This new edition of the classic guide offers a thorough and accessible introduction to contemporary critical theory. It provides 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 historicism, cultural criticism, lesbian/gay/queer theory, African-American criticism, and p...ostcolonial criticism. The chapters provide an extended explanation of each theory, using examples from everyday life, popular culture, and literary texts; a list of specific questions critics who use that theory 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; and a bibliography of primary and secondary works for further reading. This book can be used as the only text in a course or as a precursor to the study of primary theoretical works. It motivates readers by showing them what critical theory can offer in terms of their practical understanding of literary texts and in terms of their personal understanding of themselves and the world in which they live. Both engaging and rigorous, it 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.

  • by amalia

    From reading all these books not I can say I have an open mind especially from reading the critical theory one. There were so many theory that I was ignorance to. The pocket style one helped me write essays and cite them. A very helpful book by the way.

    The book A Pocket Style Manuel was one of the most helpful ones to me since it help me to cite my essays in different ways especially since some professors wan certain essays cited in very specific ways.

    Critical Theory Today covered modern trends in literary theory and was fairly clear in explaining and exemplifying these trends. A shorter, more condensed version would have been more helpful for me, however the ideas were well explained.

    The length was most difficult for me. It was better to read through than to use for quick reference. A better book would be more concise and layout and material.
