Book Description

Beginning Theory: An Introduction to Literary and Cultural Theory, Third Edition (PDF) has been assisting college students in navigating the thickets of cultural and literary theory for well over a decade now. This book was recently updated to include the latest scholarship. Readers and students will find that this third edition, which has been updated and expanded, continues to provide the greatest introduction to the subject in a single volume.

Clarity and authority are brought to bear on the dissection of a confusing range of thinkers, methodologies, and technical jargon. In contrast to many other ebooks, which take particular opinions regarding the critics and the theories they represent as given, Peter Barry gives readers the opportunity to develop their own ideas after they have an understanding of the fundamental principles and concepts.

The e-book has been revised to include two brand new chapters. The first of these, titled “Literary theory – a history in 10 events,” provides an original overview of the development of theory, while the second, titled “Theory after ‘Theory,'” traces the emergence of new “isms” since the publication of the second edition of the book in 2002. Both chapters are available for download now.
