Sunita Sinha (Editor)

Literary theories are indispensable tools for literature meant to interpret and evaluate works of literature with the mind of revealing the in-depth implications of such works.

Written in concise and clear language, Modern Literary Theories: New Perspective (Vol. I), offers a historical overview of literary criticism and theory throughout the twentieth century along with a close analysis of some of the most important and commonly taught texts from the period. The book aims at providing an accessible introduction to modern literary theory and criticism and places various modes of criticism within their historical and intellectual contexts.

It attempts to explore the works of a diverse group of 20th century writers, including Babbitt, Woolf, Bakhtin, Heidegger, Lacan, Derrida, Judith Butler, Zizek, Nussbaum, Negri and Hardt, and covers modern literary theories like transversal theory, national theory, queer theory, masculinity studies, feminism, autobiographical theory, narratology and film theory, formalism, psychoanalytical theory, new criticism, structuralism, deconstruction, Marxism, new historicism, gender studies and culture studies.

The book offers a comprehensive, critical and theoretical tool for gaining access to deeper meaning of literary canons. It will not only benefit the beginners trying to get acquainted with the theoretical and critical tools of evaluation in English literature but also prove to be interesting and useful to the teachers of English literature, leading them to the new approaches to theory and criticism.
