Shedding light on some of the most troublesome literary terms encountered by students and general readers, this gem of a book offers increased coverage of many new coinages from modern critical and theoretical movements. It also provides extensively updated coverage of traditional drama, rhetoric, literary history, and textual criticism. Throughout, the authors emphasis is on helping readers use these terms more confidently, whether in writing or in speaking (easy-to-use pronunciation guides clarify more than 200 potentially troublesome terms). Readers will find clear and often entertaining explanations for words such as multi-accentuality, postmodernism, hypertext, cyberpunk, and antanaclasis. In addition, the dictionary is thoroughly cross-referenced and now offers web links accessed via a regularly updated companion website.
A model reference book, Oxford Dictionary of Literary Terms will prove invaluable for both general readers and literature students at all levels.
