Beyond Deconstruction

The Uses and Abuses of Literary Theory

Howard Felperin

Beyond Deconstruction explains, explores, and occasionally takes issues with the large movements that have followed the New Criticism and the "practical" criticism of F. R. Leavis and others. In its responsiveness to developments on both sides of the Atlantic and to relations and differences between them this book provides a comprehensive and incisive introduction to the field.
