Literary Theory at Work: Three Texts

Front Cover
Douglas Tallack
Rowman & Littlefield, 1987 - Literary Criticism - 218 pages
PMThis is a sequel to the successful ^IModern Literary Theory by Jefferson and Robey (Barnes & Noble). While the latter concentrates on expounding theory without embarking on its application, Tallack and his Critical Theory group take three literary texts and show how different literary theories can be used in practice in the analysis of real texts. The three texts are^R In the Cage by Henry James, St Mawr by D. H. Lawrence, and Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad. The branches of theory applied to them are Structuralism (Narrative Theory and Character Theory), Psychoanalytic Theory, Feminism, Linguistics, and Reader Response Theory, Deconstruction and Marxis
