Feb 23, Liz rated it it was amazing. I strangely became endeared to this book after loathing its weight in physical, emotional, and mental proportions and now often crawl back to it seeking advice.
Shelves: literary. This book does offer a huge selection of important critics. It is nice and heavy, and has a cool dust cover.
As an introduction to theory for students, however, it is a bit overwhelming and doesn't offer much in the way of engagement with texts that other lit crit anthologies, such as Shirley Staton's "Literary Theory in Praxis" do. The elephant in the room with this book is that the editors lean heavily toward the theory of Derrida and Stanley Fish.
Derrida may have the most extensive selection This book does offer a huge selection of important critics. Derrida may have the most extensive selection in here, and Guyatri Spivak has an essay. Compared with the Longman 20th century lit crit Anthology, this criticism anthology seems heavy on the white guys, doing little to dispel the "totalitarian tinkerbell" thing. On the other hand, the Norton does have bell hooks and some great feminist criticism. Many of the black theorists and critics, particularly the men, seem to be lumped into their own "identity" category, which can be problematic.
The Norton isn't inventing this trend, which has been around for awhile; but it isn't resisting it either. In all, I think there is a great background in criticism here, but in some of the ways I mentioned, this book is a product of a certain time and certain networks of influence, not an objective account of what has been most important nor most forward-looking in criticism and theory.
Sep 19, H added it Shelves: theory-criticism. Medieval Augustine, Dante, exegetical traditions 3. Mar obviously didn't read all 3k pages. Psychoanalysis Freud; unconscious, dreams; Bloom's "anxiety of influence"; Lacan's "ecriture feminine" 7.
Apr 21, Andrew rated it liked it. This is an excellent compendium of criticism for anybody seriously interested in literature. Its only flaw is its complete lack of non-Western criticism. Simply nonexistent. It's a decent look at criticism, but it's very, very far from complete. Shelves: partial-reads. Of the too many collections of essays on literary theory I have been compelled to buy by graduate school professors who refuse to agree upon one standard textbook -- this one is probably my favorite.
At least, it's the one I'm most likely to refer back to. These glaring omiss Of the too many collections of essays on literary theory I have been compelled to buy by graduate school professors who refuse to agree upon one standard textbook -- this one is probably my favorite. Those problems aside, I like the book's introductions and appreciated that for a tome of nearly 3, pages it carries surprisingly well in a backpack. No risk of spinal injury. Anyway, if you're looking for a book of philosophy that contains an adequate mix of canonical musts Plato, Freud, etc.
Mar 17, Biblio Curious rated it it was amazing Shelves: non-fiction , poetics , bookish-books. So I didn't read this cover to cover like a novel. Overall, it was very worthwhile to discover some schools of thought for how to examine literature. This anthology goes through the history of literary theory beginning with the ancient greeks and ending in the s. There's also a great sample of disability in literature that's presented in such an interesting way.
View all 5 comments. Oct 09, Kate rated it it was amazing. Theory madness! Marvelously informative. More lit crit than the mind can manage. Handily content-tabled by movements and issues e. Really a book about thinking and sociocultural-historical-philosophical-artistic developments in all areas. Tome doubles as doorstop. Actual philosophers and crazy intellectual writers sold separately. Aug 06, Mickey rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites.
Studied this massive tome my junior year in college. It was the first time I realized how many interesting ideas are out there. A good reference and introduction for people interested in training their critical thinking skills.
Shelves: read-for-uni. Obviously have not read the whole thing! Its a beast of a book to carry around uni. Having studied him in A-level psychology I really liked being able to read the actual essays on dreams. I do think it's far to say I will never forget some of what I've learned, and I think more and more aspects of these theories will pop up in my life as I go along. Nov 25, Bhzd Sdgh rated it it was ok. While the introductions to the theorists and philosophers are concise and clear enough, the book becomes more and more anglo, and americo, centric as it approaches the end of the 20th century, in a truly disgusting way.
Jun 19, Jacob Hurley rated it it was amazing Shelves: literary-criticism. You can enter in knowing nothing and come out with a reasonable grasp of Marxism, formalism, german idealism, feminism, queer theory, reader-response theory I got this for only 20 bucks and over the course of a year and a half I got much more than my money's worth out of it.
Highly recommended May 10, Notnotnerdygirl rated it really liked it.

Сьюзан Флетчер, - ответил Бринкерхофф. Человек-гигант удивленно поднял брови. Даже перепачканная сажей и промокшая, Сьюзан Флетчер производила более сильное впечатление, чем он мог предположить. - А коммандер? - спросил. Бринкерхофф покачал головой.
