Literary Theory by Jonathan Culler

What is literary theory? Is there a relationship between literature and culture? In fact, what is literature…and does it matter? These are the kinds of questions Jonathan Culler addresses, and he illuminates a subject often perceived as impenetrable. In addition to outlining the ideas behind various schools (including deconstruction, semiotics, structuralism, and post-colonialism), he offers insights into theories about the nature of language, meaning, interpretation, poetics, rhetoric, narrative, and readership.

Aerodactyls are prehistoric zubats because of the wing shape. Their wings semi atrophyed while being stuck in pokeballs, even those wind up ones from the celebi movie, pokemon 4ever. Sorry no notes, it is 11:30 pm. Srikar out!
