Myth, Truth and Literature: Towards a True Post-modernism / Edition 2 available in Paperback
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.
