Description

Beginning theory: An introduction to literary and cultural theory 3rd edition (PDF) has been helping college students navigate through the thickets of cultural and literary theory for well over a decade now. This new and expanded 3rd edition continues to offer readers and students the best 1-volume introduction to the field.

The bewildering variety of theorists; approaches and technical language is lucidly and expertly unraveled. Unlike many ebooks which assume certain positions about the critics and the theories they represent; Peter Barry allows readers to develop their own ideas once first principles and concepts have been grasped.

The ebook has been updated and includes 2 new chapters; one of which (Literary theory – a history in 10 events) innovatively surveys the course of theory; while the other (Theory after ‘Theory’) maps the arrival of new ‘isms’ since the second edition appeared in 2002.

Structuralism – Post-structuralism and deconstruction – Liberal humanism – Psychoanalytic criticism – Postmodernism – Lesbian/gay criticism – Feminist criticism – New historicism and cultural materialism – Marxist criticism – Stylistics – Narratology – Postcolonial criticism – Ecocriticism – Presentism/Transversal poetics/ New aestheticism/Historical formalism/Cognitive Poetics.
