  • Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Comparative Literature, grade: Good, University of Dusseldorf "Heinrich Heine" (Anglistics), course: Contemporary Literature Theory and Criticism, 20 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: "Criticism, is the overall term for studies concerned with defining, clasifying, analysing, interpreting, and evaluating works of literature."1 What I'm going to analyze in this work is not criticism, but "theoretical criticism". Theoretical criticism proposes a theory of literature, in the sense of general principles, together with a set of terms, distinctions and categories , to be applied to identifying and analyzing works of literature, as well as the "criteria"2 by which these works and their writers are to be evaluated. Since the 1970s there has been a flood of writings, Continental, American and English, proposing diverse nove l and radical forms of critical theory. Why do we need criticism? In order to understand texts or to give them the "right interpretation"3. But can one speak about a right interpretation? In order to find a plausible answer to this question, I will focus on two of the most important modern literary theories, namely New Criticism, defined as "an achieved unity of meanings"4 and Deconstruction as "a galaxy of signifiers"5, comparing the two ones by means of the consulted essays on New Criticism an...

  • Master's Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1.0, University of Leipzig (English studies), language: English, abstract: Fictional animals constitute a unique literary device to let familiar things appear in a new light. Yet despite the fact that a number of dystopian texts utilise animals to convey manifold criticism, very little scholarly attention has been paid to this. The present research paper discusses the varied effects and overall significance of animal 'Others' in eight relevant dystopias from late Victorianism to Postmodernism in consideration of Edward Said's 'Otherness'. The results reveal that dystopian animal 'Others' represent a powerful tool to convey manifold social criticism. Moreover, most of the selected literature deconstructs animal 'Otherness' by jeopardising the otherwise generally unquestioned Western animal-human paradigm. This effect intensifies the dystopian impulse and, even more importantly, potentially sparks off a thought process that exposes the pejorative mechanisms underlying non-fictional 'Others'. While real-life social out-groups may benefit from the emancipatory analogy, anthropological self-criticism by questioning one's own judgmental authority appears to be even more significant.

  • There can never be literary growth in the contemporary world which is devoid of literary criticism, this is the backbone of literary theory. Literature is no longer a mere narration of stories, and prudent literary writers know that great literature is based on theoretical frameworks which give their works an edge in the intellectual world. In this book, Tintinnabulation of Literary Theory: Traversing Genres to Contemporary Experience, Andrew Nyongesa demonstrates how five theoretical frameworks, namely: Marxism, Feminism, Postcolonialism, Psychoanalysis and Stylistic are applied to genres of literature. The last chapter shows how theory has moved away from the lecture hall to real life experience. The book is a practical guide to university students and tutors of literature in their undying desire to embrace Literary Criticism.

  • This is volume eleven of Eva March Tappan's "A Friend in the Library" series, being a comprehensive guide to the writings of six seminal American poets including Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, James Russell Lowell, John Greenleaf Whittier, and Oliver Wendell Holmes. This volume deals specifically with the concept of literature, exploring its etymology and history with reference to these notable figures. "A Friend In The Library" is an easy-to-digest guide that will appeal to anyone with an interest in the English language, and it is not to be missed by students and teachers of English literature. Eva March Tappan (1854 - 1930) was an American author and teacher. Other notable works by this author include: "Adventures & Achievements" (1900), "Poems & Rhymes" (1900), and "In the Days of Queen Elizabeth" (1902). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author. This book was first published in 1909.
