Description

First published fifty years ago, A Glossary of Literary Terms remains an essential text for all serious students of literature. Now fully updated to reflect the latest scholarship on recent and rapidly evolving critical theories, the tenth edition contains a complete glossary of essential literary terms presented as a series of engaging essays that explore the terms, place them in context, and suggest related entries and additional reading. This indispensable, authoritative, and highly affordable reference covers terms useful in discussing literature and literary history, theory, and criticism. Perfect as a core text for introductory literary theory or as a supplement to any literature course, this classic work is an invaluable reference that students can continue to use throughout their academic and professional careers.

Key Features

  • Many new entries reflect cutting-edge thought on recent and rapidly evolving critical theories, making it easy for instructors to teach these emerging ideas and for students to grasp and apply them. New terms include hyptermedia, cyberfiction fiction, romance novel, detective fiction, cognitive literary study, stylometry, collective unconscious, image clusters, and image politics, among others.
  • The lists of suggested readings appended to the entries have been expanded and updated to keep pace with current scholarship and provide more current and wide-ranging opportunities for further exploration.
  • The alphabetical organization makes this comprehensive text remarkably easy to use as a convenient reference.
  • To provide students with a broad understanding, each literary term is defined in a short, reader-friendly essay.
  • Within each entry, boldfaced type indicates terms for which the entry provides the principal discussion, while italics identify terms discussed more fully elsewhere in the text, making it easy to place the reading in context and locate additional useful information.

THE DEFINITIVE BOOK ON LITERARY TERMS

I wanted to purchase a book on 'Literary Criticism' and 'Literary terms' each. And seeing that my professor who has quite a few authoritative and old 'british' books on the same topic prefers this book by M H Abrams, I purchased it without further question.

I was surprised yet rejoiced to see that it covers remote topics such as French symbolism and archetypical literary criticism quite authoritatively.

About the quality of the binding and print, no complaints from my side, though I would'...

A must have for a student of english literature

This book is a must have for a student of English Literature. But it is written in a way just any other person might comprehend. Like a dictionary and a thesaurus, it is a treasure for the student of English.

This provides the best introductions to complex topics.

A thing which has become of a cliché is the delivery service of Flipkart. Needless to say, I received it quite before the "said" time. So, that is all.
