Superb Introduction, Clear Writing,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Literary Theory: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) (Paperback)
If only every book in the Very Short Introduction-series was written as lucidly as this volume I would buy them all without hesitation.
The author does a miraculous job of sorting out the maze of the field of Litterary Science which has argurably been to eager in its choice of theory for the past 50-60 years. After reading this volume, however, you will have an adequate overview of the field and it will be within your possession to choose amongst the theories which interest you.
