Overview

Culler's most famous work, Structuralist Poetics has never been out of print since first publication in 1975, selling over 20,000 copies. It introduced a new way of studying literature by attempting to create a systematic account of the structure of literary works, rather than studying the meaning of the work. Culler's new preface answers some of the criticisms levelled at his approach and details how it is still as relevant today as when it was first published.
