Reviews for Beginning Theory: An Introduction to Literary and Cultural Theory: Fourth Edition

'There is no other book that offers such a comprehensive account of the field, combined with thoughtful, detailed exposition of the theoretical approaches under discussion. Far from being a modest survey of contemporary literary theory, it has had a vital role in shaping the way that theory is taught in Britain and North America.' English Association Newsletter -- .
