Table of contents
The ten topics contained in Twentieth-Century Literary Theory reflect contemporary theoretical interests and guide the reader through fundamental questions, from the formation to the uses of theory, and from the construction to the interpretation of literature. The selected essays cover a wealth of scholarship from both the United States and Europe. They go beyond traditional categories by focusing on issues rather than writers or critical movements, thus providing a forum for the continuing discussion of what theory is and does.

"It's unquestionably the best anthology of literary theory currently available. It supersedes all its competitors: it's up to date, more inclusive than any previous collection, and contains ingenious and welcome surprises in the way of 'extra-literary' selections that enhance its value by intelligently broadening its scope. It should prove irresistible to anyone interested in modern literary theory. This anthology is au courant. " — Jack Davis
