This new edition of David Lodge's Modern Criticism and Theory
is fully revised and expanded to take account of the developments in
theoretical contemporary literary criticism since the publication of
the first edition in 1988. Building on the strengths of the first
edition, this volume is designed to introduce the reader to the guiding
concepts of present literary and cultural debate by presenting
substantial extracts from the most seminal thinkers. As with the
original edition there is a selection of the most important and
representative work from the major schools in contemporary criticism.
introductions with updated suggestions for further reading give a
context for each essay and the editors have provided footnotes that
help explain the most difficult references. Both students and general
readers are encouraged to identify for themselves links between essays,
as the selection is ordered both historically and thematically.
