Literary theories

a case study in critical performance

Edited by

Julian Wolfreys, William J Baker

Every student of literature needs to understand how to use literary theory to analyse and interpret the text. Literary Theories challenges the out-dated notion that theory is something separable from the act of reading and interpretation and, believing that the best way to learn is through practical application, plunges the student into the midst of a range of critical readings. Clearly argued and lucidly written, these essays offer the student reader an interactive introduction to the ways in which contemporaryliterary theories challenge us to rethink interpretation, literary writing and critical reading.
