Guide to Literary Theory and Criticism

NEW ELECTRONIC RESOURCE AVAILABLE

The Johns Hopkins Guide to Literary Theory and Criticism

Edited by Michael Groden, Martin Kreiswirth, and Imre Szeman

Now expanded and updated, The Johns Hopkins Guide to Literary Theory and Criticism is an indispensable resource for scholars and students of literary theory and discourse. Revised extensively in 2004 to reflect a decade of rapidly changing scholarship, the Guide currently features 52 new entries and subentries and is updated annually. Compiled by 275 specialists from around the world, the Guide presents a comprehensive historical survey of the field's most important figures, schools, and movements. It includes more than 240 alphabetically arranged entries on critics and theorists, critical schools and movements, and the critical and theoretical innovations of specific countries and historical periods.

"First published in 1994, this title has established itself as one of the main references in the field, through well-written, in-depth articles on critics, schools, periods, and critical innovations of specific countries and ethnic traditions." — Choice

Brains @ Work in the Library












First-year Occupational Therapy graduate students meet at TWU’s Dallas Presbyterian Campus Library to study the neurological system from head to toe. Their Neuroanatomy and Physiology class demands that they take a more hands-on approach to research when studying for lab practicals. Not all research fits neatly between the pages of a book.
