A Dictionary of Literary Terms and Literary Theory

The fifth edition of J. A. Cuddon's classic dictionary updates what has become an indispensable resource for students and teachers at all levels. Incorporating recent literary terminology, the new edition adds many new entries whilst refining existing topics to ensure currency and balance of coverage.

Building on the already broad historical and cultural range, new entries pay particular attention to gender studies and queer theory, postcolonial theory, poststructuralism, postmodernism, narrative theory, and cultural studies.

With many new entries and sensitive edits of existing material, this fifth edition places the charm, wit, and scope of Cuddon's original work firmly in the twenty-first century.
