The fourth edition of J.A. Cuddon's classic dictionary has been thoroughly revised and updated to maintain it as the most comprehensive and accessible work of its kind currently available, for students, teachers and general readers alike. Expanded to include many new entries, it has been improved throughout, in places rendered more concise, in others amended and extended, with both major and minor additions. The work of the third edition, to cover the schools and various terminologies of literary theory, is continued, without compromising coverage afforded to more traditional critical terms and topics.


**** The 1979 edition is cited in Sheehy and BCL3 under the title A dictionary of literary terms--the truncated title still used in the CIP citation. The new edition has been expanded to encompass literary theory and critical movements, and many of the 2,000 terms originally defined have completely revised entries. The definitions range in length from one sentence to several pages and are thoroughly cross-referenced. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
