A Dictionary of Modern Critical Terms
Psychology Press, 1987 - Literary Criticism - 262 pages
The book differs from other 'dictionaries of criticism' in concentrating less on time-honoured rhetorical terms and more on conceptually flexible, powerful and contemporary critical terms. Each entry consists not simply of a 'dictionary definition' but an essay exploring the history and full significance of the term, and its possibilities in contemporary critical discourse.
