With detailed editorial introductions to each thematic section and a comprehensive glossary of key terms for literary and cultural study, the new edition of Literary Theory: An Anthology will be an invaluable tool for anyone interested in the legacy and trajectory of this dynamic theoretical field. A definitive collection of classic and cutting-edge theoretical texts, the anthology encompasses all major theoretical schools and methods, including classic texts on formalism, structuralism, Marxism, psychoanalysis, deconstruction, postcolonialism, and feminism.

This comprehensive scope enables students to familiarize themselves with the most recent developments in literary theory as well as the traditions from which these new theories are derived.
