Book DescriptionKey Concepts in Literary Theory presents the student of literary and critical studies with a broad range of accessible, precise and authoritative definitions of the most significant terms and concepts currently used in psychoanalytic, poststructuralist, Marxist, feminist, and postcolonial literary studies. The volume also provides clear and useful discussions of the main areas of literary, critical and cultural theory, supported by bibliographies and an expanded chronology of major thinkers. Accompanying the chronology are short biographies of major works by each critic or theorist.

Hegel, to Camille Paglia and bell hooks. * Expanded bibliographies including key texts by major critics.

Haunted Experience, Paperback (September 2016)
Uses the lenses of perception, memory and appearance to explore loss - in our experience, our imagination, in literature and film. Citing Heidegger, Derrida, Lacan, Cixous, Celan, Husserl, Woolf, Joyce, Hegel, Badiou, Rilke, Merleau-Ponty, Stockhausen and True Detective, Wolfreys offers a multi-layered unpeeling of loss in life and literature.
Derrida Wordbook, Paperback (April 2015)

Dickens's London, Paperback (April 2015)
