Summary

How does literature work? And what does it mean? How does it relate to the world: to politics, to history, to the environment? How do we analyse and interpret a literary text, paying attention to its specific poetic and fictitious qualities? This wide-ranging introduction helps students to explore these and many other essential questions in the study of literature, criticism and theory. In a series of introductory chapters, leading international scholars present the fundamental topics of literary studies through conceptual definitions as well as interpretative readings of works familiar from a range of world literary traditions. In an easy-to-navigate format, Literature: An Introduction to Theory and Analysis covers such topics as: ·Key definitions – from plot, character and style to genre, trope and author. ·Literature's relationship to the surrounding world – ethics, politics, gender and nature. ·Modes of literature and criticism – from books to performance, from creative to critical writing. With annotated reading guides throughout and a glossary of major critical schools help students when studying, revising and writing essays, this is an essential introduction and reference.
