Revised to meet the changing literary interests and emphases of the twenty-first century, the second edition of The Harper Handbook to Literature adds, augments, and clarifies definitions. Arranged in alphabetical order, this Handbook aims to satisfy curiosity about terms such as syzygy or zeugma, concepts such as structuralism or phenomenology, and literary genres and movements such as Drama or Goliardic verse. Over 100 items are new to this edition, including Queer Theory, Reader-Response Theory, Cultural Studies, Anxiety of Influence, Logocentrism, Orientalism, and Saussurean Linguistics, to name only a few. Entries generally range from a few words to summary essays with bibliographies for further study, and cross-references lead from definitions to larger concepts. A practical "Chronology of Literature and World Events," at the end of the text presents a comprehensive timeline from the earliest cities of Mesopotamia to contemporary names and titles

Realistic American short fiction by George B Perkins( Book )

4 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The stories in this collection have been selected with the classroom in mind. Although the desire to illustrate realism both as form and substance has ruled out the inclusion of some fine nonrealistics stories, and although that same desire has prompted the inclusion of one or two stories more interesting for what they illustrate about realism than for what they achieve as works of art, the attempt has been to present a collection that includes, finally, a good many of the best stories that have been written in the United States in the past hundred years. The results should prove useful to classes studying American realism, the short story as a genre, and the techniques of narrative writing
