Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'A powerful and wide-ranging publication.' French Studies

'One rises from a reading of this volume with a clear sense of the impressive range and catholicity of contemporary literary theory.' The Modern Language Review

'This book assembles a distinguished cast of contributors to consider what the problems and possibilities of literary theory today might also entail for Literary theory tomorrow. The volume reflects one of those rare occasions when the convention of essays-by-diverse-hands succeeds in maintaining a genuinely open and plural perspective on the issues it confronts.' Christopher Prendergast

'Since most of the contributors of this volume are internationally recognized figures representing a variety of disciplines, this book will likely be of interest to a wide range of literary and cultural theorists.' David B. Downing, Literature and History
