Good introduction to schools of critical thought and analysis 27 Mar. 2010
By June - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I used this book to prepare to write a thesis on a literary topic, utilizing critical, analytical theory. This is a fine introduction to the various schools of critical thought with specific short chapters discussing them. The body of the book is this look at the schools of critical thought - a nice, quick but careful look at each. Among those discussed: New Criticism, Structuralism, Reader-response criticism, reception theory, Deconstructionism, Post-colonial theory, and feminist theory. The research techniques chapter may feel a bit dated, but it's hard to keep up with the internet revolution. Textual scholarship is nicely discussed in a separate section, and tips for getting going on a dissertation are suggested, along with a series of rather cute 'library exercises.' I bought it for the introduction to critical schools of thought, and it suits that purpose admirably.

Required for class 18 Dec. 2007
By Jonnie - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was forced to buy this for an Eng lit grad course. I can't say much about about it because I haven't returned to it since then, but most of the info is commonsense if you have done advanced research; however, if you haven't there might be some helpful tips but I have found experience is the best teacher in that respect.
