The second edition of this dictionary has been completely expanded and updated. It explains concepts and topics that range from the familiar to the comparatively esoteric. Broad in scope it covers fields such as literary movements (Romanticism, Neoclassicism), technical language (anapaest, synecdoche), genres and sub-genres (tragedy, elegy), and schools of literary theory (structuralism, deconstructionism). There are over 1300 entries in this guide, which are fully cross-referenced and with many illustrative literary examples. There are also useful historical and biographical appendices. The book is aimed at the sixth form and above and is designed for A11 courses in English literature, literary studies and options on critical studies.
