Myth, Truth and Literature is a theoretical study that aims to prove the superfluousness of literary theory. The author believes that we now require a "paradigm-shift" that will replace "structuralist" and "post-structuralist" literary theory and will reestablish the validity of such old-fashioned "Romantic" notions as intuition, imagination and inspiration.  See more details below
