"In clear, succinct, non-technical language, this new dictionary of more than 850 literary terms and themes takes an expanded view of the term "literary." It is the first book of its kind to give students and general readers not only a traditional literary vocabulary but also the knowledge of related theoretical, historical, and cultural terms they need in the interdisciplinary world of contemporary literary studies. Entries reflect literature as it is taught and experienced today, with increasingly flexible boundaries between high and popular culture, canonical and non-canonical literature, literary and nonliterary vocabulary."--Jacket
