Postmodern Literary Theory: An Anthology (063121027X) cover image
Literature today is a very different concept from that of only a generation ago, and this difference is attributed usually to 'postmodernism'. Most radical of all is the possibility that the very notion of literature is rendered untenable by postmodernism. How did this possibility arise? Who are the key figures responsible for its emergence; which are the key texts of its expression? This Anthology provides ways of responding to such questions.

'This is a timely and well-constructed anthology which carves out a distinctive niche among the many recent books on postmodermism....It finds room for a wide variety of arguments, approaches and critical viewpoints and thereby encourages readers to form their own judgement as to the implications of postmodernist thinking for literary criticism and theory.'
