'A compact volume that performs marvels in the difficult art of summarizing (without betrayal) the complex theories that for the past seventy-five years have been labelled "structuralist". Hawkes ranges from Vico to Barthes, writing with a lucidity and grasp of the essential points that is nothing short of astonishing.' - Choice 'Occasionally a book appears which, because of its scope and vision, serves not just as a tool for our field, but as a suggestion of a larger enterprise. Hawkes provides such a work in this exposition and synthesis of major figures and works of the intellectual movement structuralism and it derivative semiotics. His treatment is thorough and scholarly, yet accessible to readers not already versed in the methods, concepts and argot of the movement.' - Quarterly Journal of Speech --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

When I was introduced to Structuralism for the first time at University I was struggling to get to grips with this complex critical theory. Then I got a copy of Terry Hawkes' book.His explanation of the development and principles of Structuralism is very clear and uncomplicated, and he has pitched the language he uses at a level that makes the subject more easily accessable to someone approaching it for the first time. I would recommend it to all first year undergradute students of English.
