I have marked it up with so many notes and highlights and learned so much, especially regarding gender studies.
A fantastic add to my personal reference books. Lynn steers past the shoals that sunk my pedagogical interest in the Guide for the Perplexed lit theory survey, first, by providing clear examples of how each school of thought reads, and by anticipating objections to the weirdness and political engagement or at least pretensions to political engagement of each of these schools.
His section on Freud, for example, congenially which is the tone, throughout explains that the concept of penis envy "continues even today to drive people up a wall.
I've only a few objections to it. The first is simply medieval crankiness: Hamlet and Milton anchor the--how did I end up with this nautical conceit?
Not a serious problem, by any means, since I wouldn't expect him to read Gerald of Wales in the way I want him read, anyhow. My second objection is more substantial. The Klages survey divided criticism into humanist outmoded and posthumanist hip and with it since at least and rapidly dispensed with humanist approaches.
Given the divisions, her explanations were much more sophisticated than Lynn, and they were generally in line with my own critical interests. Lynn, by contrast, gives us only Freud and provides nothing of Lacan. In fact, he tends towards humanist critiques: his example of a psychoanalytic reading is a character study of Hamlet rather than, say, a study of language and representation itself, and he devotes his explanation of "historicist" readings to doing a biographical exegesis of the relationship between John Cheever's life and a short story.
In short, there's just not enough cultural critique. These problems hardly sink the book, however, and I just might assign it next semester, if only because its explanations of New Criticism, poststructuralism, and feminist and gender critique are pretty good, and the last chapter on doing research is flawless. I can always victimize the Hamlet reading, and a few of the others, to create a communal mis?
We read through this whole book for my Lit Crit class. I thought it did a fairly nice job of summarizing all the different types of literary criticism and I enjoyed the random cartoons throughout the book. I also thought it was funny because the tone of voice for the book was very casual and sounded a lot like my teacher, which is probably why he picked it for our course reading.
I'd only recommend if you were interested in this subject. Jun 22, sologdin rated it it was ok Shelves: literary-theory. I have read most of this book now. I am still will be using it until I finish my BYU writing class. Painful, would be another way to describe this class. The only thing keeping me going in this writing class is that I will get to do lots more history classes after this.
I know that just because something is painful it doesn't mean that it isn't good for me. So I keep repeating, "Taking this class is good for me," over and over. Wasn't able to finish this before the end of the semester, though I did read the assigned sections and therefore ended up reading most of the book. Hopefully I'll get to finish it up at some point, since it was a good introduction to literary theory, especially for someone like me who had never been in that type of class before.
Feb 10, Kassy rated it really liked it. Texts and Contexts is a very accessible, often fun, survey of critical schools in literary thought. Lynn employs whimsical drawings, a travel metaphor, and excellent step by step examples, which are all very helpful. I read it for a class, but I would suggest it to anyone wondering about the ways that we view literature within modern, post modern, and contemporary thought.
This text was not as useful to me as Guerin's text. I am not sure if that is because I was already familiar with Guerin's by the time I was required to read this or because Guerin's was just better. Aug 22, G. It was an enjoyable and instructive read and I am looking forward to the course. But, damn! Why the high-gouge cover price? It was hard to get through, but it was interesting. I had to read this for my introduction to English Studies class.

New Criticism was a formalist movement in literary theory that dominated American literary criticism in the middle decades of the 20th century. It emphasized close reading , particularly of poetry , to discover how a work of literature functioned as a self-contained, self-referential aesthetic object. The work of Cambridge scholar I. Richards , especially his Practical Criticism and The Meaning of Meaning , which offered what was claimed to be an empirical scientific approach, were important to the development of New Critical methodology. Eliot , such as " Tradition and the Individual Talent " and " Hamlet and His Problems ", in which Eliot developed his notion of the " objective correlative ". Eliot's evaluative judgments, such as his condemnation of Milton and Dryden, his liking for the so-called metaphysical poets , and his insistence that poetry must be impersonal, greatly influenced the formation of the New Critical canon. New Criticism developed as a reaction to the older philological and literary history schools of the US North, which, influenced by nineteenth-century German scholarship, focused on the history and meaning of individual words and their relation to foreign and ancient languages, comparative sources, and the biographical circumstances of the authors.
Согласно регистру, кто-то открывал ее компьютер, пока ее не было в комнате. Но это невозможно. У нее перехватило дыхание. Единственным кандидатом в подозреваемые был Грег Хейл, но Сьюзан могла поклясться, что никогда не давала ему свой персональный код. Следуя классической криптографической процедуре, она выбрала пароль произвольно и не стала его записывать. То, что Хейл мог его угадать, было исключено: число комбинаций составляло тридцать шесть в пятой степени, или свыше шестидесяти миллионов.
- Фонд электронных границ замучил неприкосновенностью частной жизни и переписки. Сьюзан хмыкнула. Этот фонд, всемирная коалиция пользователей компьютеров, развернул мощное движение в защиту гражданских свобод, прежде всего свободы слова в Интернете, разъясняя людям реальности и опасности жизни в электронном мире. Фонд постоянно выступал против того, что именовалось им оруэлловскими средствами подслушивания, имеющимися в распоряжении правительственных агентств, прежде всего АНБ. Этот фонд был для Стратмора постоянной головной болью. - Не вижу ничего нового, - сказала Сьюзан.

- Я в это не верю. Всем известно, что невзламываемый алгоритм - математическая бессмыслица. Хейл улыбнулся: - Ну конечно… Принцип Бергофского. - А также здравый смысл! - отрезала. - Кто знает… - Хейл театрально вздохнул. - Есть множество такого… что и не снилось нашим мудрецам. - Прошу прощения.
Успокойся, Сьюзан, - сказал Стратмор, положив руку ей на плечо. Это умиротворяющее прикосновение вывело Сьюзан из оцепенения. Внезапно она вспомнила, зачем искала Стратмора, и повернулась к. - Коммандер. Северная Дакота - это Грег Хейл.
Немедленно. Казалось, на директора его слова не произвели впечатления. - Должен быть другой выход. - Да, - в сердцах бросил Джабба.
Забудьте о ней! - Он отключил телефон и запихнул за ремень. Больше ему никто не помешает.
