See details and exclusions. The first source which actually and completely explains semiotics to me in a way I can understand From Amazon I have long appreciated the first edition of this excellent book. Apparently the second edition expands the feminist section although the feminist section of the bibliography remains similar to the first edition and includes consideration of post-modernism, which the bright and engaging author considers at greater length, at arm's length, in a separate book.
The second edition also includes a new preface, which I admit I have not read. I am still grateful to and involved with and faithful to the first edition.
The author fully and carefully presents very difficult material in a comprehensible and engaging manner, logically, and structured for learning. In short, this is actually an academic expert on literary criticism who can not only write well but can teach, and how rare a beast is that! Terry also supplies us with very valid reasons in his conclusion for caring deeply about the ability to read a text critically.
Basically, we thus can perceive truth from propaganda and unreliable sources. We can know when our own government lies to us, and who has an ax to grind or a bill of goods to sell. This book therefore should be as necessary and required a study for any and every reader as are warnings on a pack of cigarettes. By this book we gain the power to understand and to judge what we read; we learn to read critically and contextually, and to learn that not all which is printed is true. And by this book alone I have finally come to begin to perceive just what is meant by that frequently used and never explained term semiotics.
That alone is worth the price of admission. No fooling around! Seriously, this scholar with great talent and commitment opens the world of literacy to us in a comprehensible manner, without leaving anything out. The subtitle of course remains: An Introduction. This introductory book hopefully serves as a portal for you to explore the many other writings and editings of this excellent teacher, thinker and writer.
Erasmus and the Invention of Literature
Learn to read, critically, and become stronger and wiser and free. Lovely, compelling. From Amazon Remarkable introduction to several trends of literary criticism in the XX century. I had never seen something like this before. The author presents all critical trends in such a ways as to dissect their founding bases, their theoretical a priori.
A quarter of a century on from its original publication, Literary Theory: An Introduction still conjures the subversion, excitement and exoticism that characterized theory through the s and 70s, when it posed an unprecedented challenge to the literary establishment. Eagleton has added a new preface to this anniversary edition to address more recent developments in literary studies, including what he describes as "the growth of a kind of anti-theory", and the idea that literary theory has been institutionalized.
Literary Criticism from Plato to the Present
Insightful and enlightening, Literary Theory: An Introduction remains the essential guide to the field. There had been guides to particular authors, and even periods, but no single one book that could claim to be "essential reading" Eagleton's book-which clearly understands the discipline and institutions of English-offered this. It's not just a brilliant polemical essay, it's also a remarkable feat of condensation, explication, and synthesis Stimulating and entertaining.
