Literary Theory : A Beginner's Guide, Paperback Book

Literary Theory : A Beginner's Guide Paperback

Part of the Beginner's Guides series


Rescuing the subject from deadly dry theorists and -isms, Clare Connors focuses on the real questions that emerge when we read and study literature - such as how we find meaning and how literature relates to its historical context - before exploring the response of theorists.

Using selections from works including poetry by Christina Rossetti and Annie Proulx's Brokeback Mountain, Connors unites theory with practice, revealing how enjoyable it is to think about reading.
