This is an account of all the major movements in literary theory up to the late 1960s, with an international focus and particular emphasis on European thinkers. The principles of each theoretical position are explained in relation to preceding and succeeding positions, and in relation to the socio political structures and literary practices of the time. The book also includes a glossary, time charts and suggestions for further reading.
