I especially enjoyed the sections on poststructuralism, deconstruction, and postmodernism, although they did result in a sharp increase of my TBR list. A must read for any student of literature.
As its discussion of literary theory is somewhat perfunctory, this book is not recommended for the more advanced student, who likely requires greater depth of analysis.
However, for those just starting out or wishing simply to dabble in literary theory, this introductory text provides an excellent starting point. Bertens grounds his discussion in the intersection of literary interpretation and literary theory, and addresses the major bodies of literary criticism in chronological order over the past century. Each chapter addresses one major critical trend or school, and lists the seminal texts and authors of each, as well as their specific contributions and main ideas.
At the end of each chapter, a brief summary reiterates some of the more sentient points, and situates the critical school in the context of criticism and theory more broadly. For such a small volume, this is quite an accomplishment. Eneles Jul 11, Updates Wilfred Guerin. For grad students.
