From Formalism to Poststructuralism

£34.99

Product description

Volume 8 of The Cambridge History of Literary Criticism deals with the most influential and hotly debated areas of literary theory as they developed in Europe and revolutionised Anglo-American literary studies. Incorporating full bibliographies, this volume charts and analyses these cross-cultural intellectual movements. Volume 8 of The Cambridge History of Literary Criticism deals with the most influential and hotly debated areas of literary theory: those developing in Europe but having their main impact in the Anglo-American world of academic literary studies, whose course they have fundamentally redirected. The structuralism, poststructuralism, Russian formalism, semiotics, narratology, hermeneutics, phenomenology, reception theory, and speech act theory associated with European writers including Barthes, Todorov, Derrida, and Iser, are here described in the context of their original development, but with an eye also to their eventual influence; and the volume includes a reflective chapter by Richard Rorty on deconstruction. Incorporating full bibliographies, this volume engages systematically with the history of the twentieth century's most profound and extensive set of cross-cultural intellectual movements.

Cambridge University Press hardback with intact DJ. held in place by a transparent plastic cover. This is an ex-library book with a label on its spine, and a bar label, number and stamp on the ffep. No other marks either of its origins or annotations etc. Good binding.

One of an important series here as an ex-library book but bearing few scars.
