Description - Formalist Criticism and Reader-Response Theory by Todd Davis
This guide offers an accessible introduction to two important movements in the history of 20th-century literary theory: formalist criticism and reader-response theory. A complementary text to the Palgrave volume "Postmodern Narrative Theory" by Mark Currie, this book addresses a host of theoretical concerns, as well as each field's principal figures and interpretive modes. This volume includes readings of a range of widely studied texts, including Joseph Conrad's "Heart of Darkness", Charlotte Bronte's "Jane Eyre" and F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby", among others.
