Literary theory : a very short introduction by Jonathan D Culler( Book )

81 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 3,195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Very Short Introductions offer stimulating, accessible introductions to a wide variety of subjects, demonstrating the finest contemporary thinking about their central problems and issues."--Back cover
On deconstruction : theory and criticism after structuralism by Jonathan D Culler( Book )

119 editions published between 1982 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 2,732 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With an emphasis on readers and reading, the author considers deconstruction in terms of the questions raised by psychoanalytic, feminist, and reader-response criticism. As a result, this book is both an authoritative synthesis of Derrida's thought and an analysis of the often-problematic relation between his philosophical writings and the work of literary critics
Structuralist poetics : structuralism, linguistics, and the study of literature by Jonathan D Culler( Book )

111 editions published between 1975 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 2,249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book introduces a new way of studying literature by attempting to create a systematic account of the structure of literary works, rather than studying the meaning of the work. It offers an overview and appraisal of contributions to literary theory of French structuralism and post- structuralism. Culler's new preface answers some of the criticisms leveled at his approach and details how it is still as relevant today as when it was first published
Roland Barthes by Jonathan D Culler( Book )

59 editions published between 1983 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Roland Barthes (1915-80) was an 'incomparable enlivener of the literary mind' whose lifelong fascination was with 'the way people make their world intelligible'. He has a multifaceted claim to fame: to some he is the structuralist who outlined a 'science of literature', and the most prominent promoter of semiology; to others he stands not for science but pleasure, espousing literature which gives the reader a creative role." "He called for 'the death of the author', urging that we study not writers but texts, yet he himself published idiosyncratic books rightly celebrated as imaginative products of a personal vision." "Jonathan Culler elucidates the varied theoretical contributions of this 'public experimenter' and describes the many projects which Barthes explored."--Jacket
The pursuit of signs--semiotics, literature, deconstruction by Jonathan D Culler( Book )

85 editions published between 1980 and 2011 in English and held by 1,638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To gain a deeper understanding of the literary movement that has dominated recent Anglo-American literary criticism, The Pursuit of Signs is a must. In a world increasingly mediated, it offers insights into our ways of consuming texts that are both brilliant and bold. Dancing through semiotics, reader-response criticism, the value of the apostrophe and much more, Jonathan Culler opens up for every reader the closed world of literary criticism. Its impact on first publication, in 1981, was immense; now, as Mieke Bal notes, 'the book has the same urgency and acuity that it had then', though today it has even wider implications: 'with the interdisciplinary turn taking hold, literary theory itself, through this book, becomes a much more widespread tool for cultural analysis'

Roland Barthes by Jonathan D Culler( Book )

18 editions published between 1930 and 2015 in Chinese and French and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couv. indique : "Roland Barthes (1915-1980) a occupé une place éminente dans le milieu de la culture, de la sémiologie et de la critique littéraire. De Mythologies en 1954 à son dernier ouvrage sur la photographie, La chambre claire, il est devenu l'éminence grise d'une avant-garde qui, avec le structuralisme, a radicalement transformé les humanités en général et les lettres en particulier. Comment évaluer aujourd'hui la résonance du sémiologue? Comment définir le type de penseur ou d'intellectuel qu'était Roland Barthes? Jonathan Culler présente avec une très grande clarté les traits essentiels de l'invention théorique et du travail critique de Roland Barthes et signe une des meilleures introductions à l'œuvre foisonnante de ce théoricien de la littérature et de la culture."

Structuralism( Book )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Organized thematically, this four-volume collection explores the key areas of structuralism - and with a new introduction by the editor to guide the reader through the work, this is an essential collection of secondary sources that provides a valuable tool for research. Taking as their methodological model the successes of the structural linguistics inaugurated by Ferdinand de Saussure, a group of thinkers in such fields as anthropology, literary and cultural studies, sociology and philosophy developed ambitious programs for the interdisciplinary study of the systems by which human beings make the world intelligible
