Each essay discusses the significance, underlying assumptions, and limits of an important field in linguistics or literary studies, traces the historical development of its subject, introduces key terms, outlines modes of inquiry now being pursued, postulates likely future developments, and provides suggestions for further reading and a lot of work cites. Frequent examples make the material readily accessible to student readers.
