This was a terrific book for students of literary criticism. I myself went to a university that was completely devoted to deconstructionism, except for the South American department, which was heavily Marxist. You could go there for years and never hear a word about any other kind of literary criticism.

This book really enhanced my education--and no, I didn't order it for a class. I just needed to know more about other schools of thought. This book explained them very well, and then gave lengthy exerpts of the texts that were suited to this kind of criticism. Because it gave a preview of the whole school of thought, then a complelling passage, then questions and analysis following each passage, I could really understand how the each form of criticism was applied to the relevant texts.

No wonder I didn't care for deconstructionism (to put it as nicely as possible). Turns out I'm a semiotics gal.

I am not entirely sure why you are reading reviews about this book. You probably have to buy it for a class you are taking, which means that even if it is the worst book ever written (which it isn't, looking at you Twilight) you would still have to buy it. Hopefully you signed up for Amazon student and you get the free 2-day shipping.

This book is very difficult to read because the author uses big words and long sentences seemingly to show his intelligence. What he says in 20 words could be said in about 5.
