Peter Widdowson was Professor of English at the Universities of Middlesex, Brighton and Gloucester. He was able uniquely to combine seriousness with wit and good humour. His strong and questioning historical sense, evident in his teaching and notably in his work on Thomas Hardy and on the ramifications of contemporary theory, remains a model for younger scholars. Peter Brooker is Emeritus Professor in the Department of Culture, Film and Media at the University of Nottingham, United Kingdom

Raman Selden et a. A Reader’s Guide to Contemporary Literary Theory That includes putting all the major works containing readings into the Middle East Seminar Room (5th floor, Van Pelt Library), thus bringing things together in the room intended for study and discussion (that's.

That includes putting all the major works containing readings into the Middle East Seminar Room (5th floor, Van Pelt Library), thus bringing things together in the room intended for study and discussion (that's where the course itself will be held) and also avoiding the Reserve Room in the basement of the Library.

Retaining the valuable features of the original book, this revision provides coverage of the main literary theories and useful further readings as well as bibliographies. Remaining true to its title, this new edition adds new material on 'contemporary' literary theories, such as: cultural materialism, post-colonial theory, feminist theory, Black British, African-American, Asian, Caribbean theory, and Gay and Lesbian theory.

Excellent reference book for literary studies.

Comprehensive overview of literary theories- however, not always quite as clear as one would like.

For some years I have used this book, in a number of its editions, as one of the texts in my college upper-division literary theory class. Each edition is better and more inclusive than the last. Selden sorts out literary theory into its logical categories (New Criticism, structuralism, poststructuralism, cultural theories). Chapters provide useful, clearly written, and accurate summaries of fields/schools/movements and brief summaries of the works and contributions of major theorists in each. The book works particularly well in a twentieth-century theory class in conjunction with a reader in primary theory, such as the wonderful Norton Anthology of Critical Theory (first published in 2001) and a glossary of critical terms (such as the terrifically useful Oxford Dictionary of Literary Theory). My students consistently end up liking Selden's book; they usually comment on how clearly it lays out major ideas in each theoretical camp and how it helps them to read the difficult primary texts by powerhouses such as Marx, Derrida, Foucault, Cixous. The companion reader is ok, but not as useful as this summary of theoretical positions.

It is easy to fault any discussion of literary theory for being unclear or full of jargon. This book is clear in its explanations, and is as unbiased as it gets, given the subject and terminology. We should not confuse a subject full of obscurities and difficulties with the book that tries to explain them. This book is very basic and simple, (although it could seem difficult for a beginner), but I've found that literary theory takes a long time to really understand and there are many texts that one should know if one is to read widely in the subject. This book has been great to return to at various stages of my understanding and reading over the years. An indispensable, basic tool.
Runeterror
this is a helpful book if one is more interested in name dropping than in the clear presentation of critical approaches. the author has a knack for making the obscure even more obscure. more often than not jargon takes the place of analysis.
