Contemporary Literary Theory


In this series of essays, the authors aim to analyze the relationship between contemporary literary theory and its practice. The authors have selected twelve of the most prominent, influential and far-reaching theoretical positions currently available, such as hermeneutics, archetypal criticism, deconstruction, psychoanalysis, feminism and Marxism. In a way that the general reader can easily access, Atikins and Morrow discuss the primary features, background, strategies and implications of those theories which are most influential at the present time.
