Abstract
This book is a concise introduction to the major approaches, methods and terms in contemporary literary theory. It traces the development of literary theory from the late 19th to the early 21st century, from varieties of formalism to queer theory, postcolonial studies and ecocriticism. Written in a clear and accessible style, it helps readers to participate in current theoretical discussions and to use theory as a tool for exploring the fascinating complexities of literary texts.
