Oxford Twenty-First Century Approaches to Literature

  • Addresses the vital question: What do we mean when we talk about 'reading'?
  • Thinks expansively about the scope of the term 'reading' and its various techniques within today's rapidly changing multimedia environment
  • Explores the complexity of reading in the twenty-first century from various perspectives both within literary criticism and from other disciplines
  • Foregrounds reading as a topic worthy of investigation in its own right rather than as a sub-section of histories of the book, sociologies of literacy, or theories of literature
  • Presents stylish, speculative, and thought-provoking responses oriented toward the future rather than backward-looking reviews of the discipline
