Literature fiction

Critically, literary theory is a core subject in the study of literature. but theory-- especially when it takes the form of '-isms'--can often be intimidating or boring for students. bennett & Royle have avoided simply giving potted summaries of '-isms' and instead present brief essays on a range of key critical concepts, all of which have more or less familiar names. These concepts are put into practice through readings of particular literary texts.
