123 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in 14 languages and held by 2,283 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
Structuralist poetics : structuralism, linguistics, and the study of literature by Jonathan D Culler( Book )

103 editions published between 1975 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 1,917 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
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 1,822 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
Roland Barthes by Jonathan D Culler( Book )

64 editions published between 1930 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,647 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 )

81 editions published between 1980 and 2011 in English and held by 1,518 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'

Trois essais d'Umberto Eco forment le noyau de ce livre. Il y développe sa conception de l'intention de l'oeuvre et de la façon dont elle peut imposer des limites aux interprétations possibles. R.

Umberto Eco, international best-selling novelist and leading literary theorist, here brings together these two roles in a provocative discussion of the vexed question of literary interpretation.

Eco's illuminating and frequently hilarious discussion
