A lively discussion of literary theory's central concerns

The Complete Idiot's Guide® to Literary Theory and Criticism has all the information a budding literary theorist needs to know to understand dozens of stimulating perspectives for approaching literature and film.

Internationally recognised literary theorist Steven J. Venturino offers you easy-to-follow explanations of theories that range from established classics to the controversies of current theory with references and quotations from both classic and modern novels, stories, plays, poems, and movies.
