Literature in the Modern World

Critical Essays and Documents

Second Edition

Edited by Dennis Walder

  • Completely updated to focus more on gender and identity and on recent debates such as 'Literature and Nation' and Literature and Value'.
  • The relevance of the book has been extended, including more writers and critics from outside Europe.
  • Brings together texts that cannot normally be found together in one volume by combining critical material with essays on writing by well-known authors such as Umberto Eco and Toni Morrison.
  • The book is introduced and arranged to allow students to gain an understanding of where the current debates on literary theory come from.
  • Brings together a wide variety of theoretical fields and disciplines such as postcolonial and feminist theory.
