Summary "The Johns Hopkins Guide to Literary Theory and Criticism has become the indispensable resource for scholars, students, and others engaged in this central field of intellectual activity in the humanities and social sciences. The long-awaited second edition includes 46 new entries and subentries and has been revised extensively throughout, taking account of ten years of rapidly changing thought and the appearance of important new scholarship."
"While concentrating on the explosion of contemporary critical and theoretical discourse, the Guide presents a comprehensive historical survey of ideas and individuals ranging from Plato and Aristotle to twentieth-century scholars. Its more than 240 alphabetically arranged entries provide thorough yet concise discussions of critics and theorists, critical schools and movements, and the critical and theoretical innovations of specific countries and historical periods. They also examine developments in other disciplines which have influenced literary thought. An international, encyclopedic reference to the field's most important figures, schools, and movements, the new edition of the Guide again reflects the latest state of literary theory and criticism."--BOOK JACKET
