Literary Theory at Work; Three Texts
Tallack, Douglas,
ISBN: 0713451408
Batsford Ltd, London, 1991. 
  Softcover. Very Good Condition/. Reprint. This collection of essays aims to provide a balanced conspectus on the field of literary theory by applying nine theories to the analysis of three texts: Joseph Conrad's "Heart of Darkness", Henry James' "In the Cage" and D. H. Lawrence's "St Mawr". This structure enables an interchange to take place between approaches drawn from all the main areas of recent critical theory: structuralism, post-structuralism, marxism, feminism and psychoanalysis. The book is addressed to all teachers and students who are interested in modern critical theory but want also to see how it can engage with a literary text. It is intended to bridge the gap which seems to have opened up between theory and practice, by explaining each theory and then showing its operation in a detailed reading of a text. – paraphrasing the rear panel.

"Lionel Murphy's progressive legislation and High Court judgements remain a significant influence on Australian society today. The essays in this superb collection, which make connections between Murphy's forwardthinking approach and current debates, offer valuable insights on pressing issues of our times -- and despair she so when aspects of Murphy's legacy are being undermined by coalition governments. Yet Murphy had great faith in a well-informed public within the democratic pro-cess. The critical perspectives provided on these thoughtful essays make a wonderful contribution towards enlightening at community on important issues." -- rear panel blurb Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
