" A clear and accessible demonstration of how contemporary literary theories can be applied to a wide range of texts, from Shakespeare, Bunyan, Sterne, Keats, to James, Stevens, Joyce, Pinter, Updike, and Arthur Miller."

Selden's penchant for zeroing in on the minutia of critical tidbits is both his strong and weak points. I had no problem following his sometimes meandering mode of thought but only because I have a strong background in theory. I also liked his set of concluding exercises that give the reader an opportunity to absorb an admittedly large number of abstruse terms and concepts and apply them to specific tasks using clearly identified schools of theory. Such writing tasks are self-imposed and self-analyzed.

aman Selden’s original A Reader’s Guide to Contemporary Literary Theory . How, after all, does it affect our experience and understanding of reading literary texts?

until recently ordinary readers of literature and even professional literary critics had no reason to trouble themselves about developments in literary theory. Theory seemed a rather rareed specialism which concerned a few individuals in literature departments who were, in effect, philosophers pretending to be literary critics. How, after all, does it affect our experience and understanding of reading literary texts?

This book is an attempt to make modern literary theory intelligible and attractive to as wide a readership as possible.
