The Norton Anthology of Theory and Criticism presents a staggeringly varied collection of the most influential critical statements from the classical era to the present day.


This welcome addition to the Norton anthologies binds the writings from 148 authors<-->among them Gorgias of Leontini, Plato, Aristotle, Horace, Longinus, Quintilian, Dante, Corneille, Dryden, Aphra Behn, Vico, Wollstonecraft, Coleridge, Poe, Baudelaire, Lukacs, Heidegger, Gramsci, Barthes, Raymond Williams, Haraway, Hebdige, hooks, Judith Butler, and the most recent theorist, Stuart Moulthrop. Writers are arranged according to linear time, but can be found in an alternative table of contents under movements (e.g., cultural studies, deconstruction and poststructuralism, queer theory); genres (poetry, novel, etc.); historical periods, and within a section called "Issues and Topics" (e.g., the body, authorship, the canon, narrative, representation and realism, the modern). Each author is substantially and substantively introduced, and then provided with a bibliography. Issues of race, nationality, class, gender, and sexuality are well- represented, but those of species and (dis)ability, nearly absent. A necessary reader and money-saver for the English graduate student. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
