  • I use this book in a class for English majors It sparks great discussions about foundational topics, but it does feel dated each year.


  • The fact that Conflicting Views is in the sub title did not bode well for this book when I began reading it, and it went downhill from there This book is a self styled introduction to literary criticism and purports to include an expansive view from the different theories, but it does neither at least, not effectively The articles are almost entirely chosen for their bent toward Marxist and Feminist theory two theories I particularly favor, as I believe they are the most realistically represente [...]

  • I have been working through the essays for 2 months now and finally have to return the text to the library I am reading Toni Morrison s essay on Black Matter s in the last section on How We Read.I have ordered my own copy so that I can continue to work on the essays and reference materials.My recommendation for anyone that is interested in this book on Literary theory is to read David Richter s essays at the beginning of each section and then chart a path through the text based upon interest tha [...]


  • I didn t read every essay in here, but the ones I did read were interesting Some were very difficult to read because they were really tense However, some were fairly easy to read.Interesting book for those interested in different types of literary criticism.


  • This book does a pretty good job of excerpting essays from seminal works of lit crit Some of it can be pretty dense, though.
