Literary Theory: A Reintroduction

by David Ayers

Condition: New

Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd/Blackwell, 2008. Softcover. New. Beginning in the 1920s, the book looks at the impact of the periods preceding the ‘theory movement’ and reintroduces this movement from a contemporary perspective. Engaging the reader in questions about the origin, reception and analysis of literary theory, Ayers explores how and why popular criticisms developed, and consider their futures. Major influences on the development of modern theory are examined, among them the creation of university English and campus politics; the Cold War; the Anglo-Americanization of French and German theory; the culture wars; and the politics of contemporary historicist scholarship. Key figures such as F. R. Leavis, Raymond Williams, Jacques Derrida, Michel Foucault, Judith Butler and Alain Badiou are also discussed. Printed Pages: 256.
