    I had to use this book for an upper level Literary Criticism and Analysis class in undergrad I tried doing some of the readings early on in the semester, then got bored.Towards the end of the semester, we had to write an essay using a number of essays from this text, to which I felt horrible for not doing many of the readings.As I went back through in preparation for my essay, I realized how great many of the essays were Not only do they apply to great literature or poor literature many a Twilight reference was made in that class , but they also apply to life In my graduate speech, I was able to incorporate some of what I learned from Foucault in this text.My teacher once made a joke about how if she was stuck on a desert island with only one book, she would pick this one because it could entertain her for hours I laughed at how ridiculoous this statement was until a few months later when I realized how accurate this statement was.The class is done, and I have the degree, but this is one of those books you just wanna hang on to

    An excellent reader with concise introductory information on each theorist neatly cross referenced to help situate the individual author in a framework of critical thinking.

    A jumbled mess of pseudo intellectual, warmed over Marxist political claptrap, where race, gender and identity politics are elevated to near fetish Advise study Shakespeare instead.
