Tallack, Douglas,: Literary Theory at Work; Three Texts
Book Number: 0252033
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.The book is clean and free of annotation, and there is no damage to detail.
