This book provides a wide-ranging guide to current directions in literary criticism. Introducing Criticism in the 21st Century develops out of continental thinking and insights from poststructuralism, feminism, deconstruction and psychoanalysis and introduces new modes of 'hybrid' criticism which are emerging at the beginning of the 21st century. The chapters provide thought-provoking overviews of critical thinking at the cutting edge. Each of the authors explains in lucid terms the various contours of their discourses while bringing these into sharp relief for the student reader through readings of canonical novels, poems, plays, films and websites. It addresses the various 'states of criticism' at the beginning of the century. Each chapter explores and explains aspects of the theory it addresses, provides a brief 3-4 page reading of a literary text, film text or website and concludes with questions for further consideration, an annotated bibliography and a supplementary bibliography. The critical readings provide a teaching and study resource and demonstrate the scope of theoretical applications.
