by David Lodge
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0582494605, Paperback)This reader is designed as a companion volume and is some sense, sequel to David Lodge's 20th Century Literary Criticism-A Reader. Since the earlier book was compiled, the academic study of literature has been revolutionised by the impact of structuralism and post-structuralist theory.
