Literature in contexts

Peter Barry

Published by Manchester University Press

  • A trenchant critique of New Historicism and literary theory
  • A book which attempts to re-route the study of literature back towards the particularity of the texts themselves
  • Written by the author of Beginning theory, so it is especially readable
  • Seeks to problematise the notion of 'context', which has been under theorised and under used
