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

64 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,894 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 )

110 editions published between 1982 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,821 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 )

92 editions published between 1975 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,802 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
The pursuit of signs--semiotics, literature, deconstruction by Jonathan D Culler( Book )

81 editions published between 1980 and 2011 in English and held by 1,519 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'
Ferdinand de Saussure by Jonathan D Culler( Book )

94 editions published between 1976 and 2002 in 8 languages and held by 1,517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Flaubert; the uses of uncertainty by Jonathan D Culler( Book )

Roland Barthes by Jonathan D Culler( Book )

32 editions published between 1983 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roland Barthes was the leading figure of French Structuralism, the theoretical movement of the 1960s which revolutionized the study of literature and culture, as well as history and psychoanalysis. But Barthes was a man who disliked orthodoxies. His shifting positions and theoretical interests make him hard to grasp and assess. This book surveys Barthes' work in clear, accessible prose, highlighting what is most interesting and important in his work today. In particular, the book describes the many projects, which Barthes explored and which helped to change the way we think about a range of cultural phenomena--from literature, fashion, wrestling, and advertising to notions of the self, of history, and of nature

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

32 editions published between 1930 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 535 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
