Overview

Rather than a straightforward dictionary of terms, this book gives students a brief introduction to each concept together with short extracts from the work of key thinkers and critics. Each term, concept or keyword and the passages discussing these are glossed and annotated; at the end of each entry a few reflective, practical questions direct the student to consider a particular aspect of the quotations and the concept they address. The book is designed to be used as a dip-in reference book as well as a guide to literary theory for practical classroom use.
