    One thought on “A Handbook of Critical Approaches to Literature”

    1. I read this for fun! :) haha not! I'm currently taking Literature criticism *super fun stuff. This is only the first textbook we're going to cover! Therefore, you can only imagine how happy i am these days But, nonetheless, this book is very educational, and informative among other things.

    2. به باور من ادبیات به خودی خود ارزشمند نیست و تنها در صورتی فایده دارد که موجب تفریح و لذت شود. اگر بخواهم چیزی یاد بگیرم، به منابع علمی و اگر بخواهم نصیحت شوم، به کتاب های فلسفه اخلاق رجوع می کنم. البته به عنوان یک نویسنده نوپا، گاهی برخی آثار ادبی را می خوانم تا از کامیابی و شکس [...]

    3. The book was pretty much useful specially for its part of "in practice" in each sections.This book with the one by Bressler are definitely the best ones for learning and understanding Literary Criticism

    4. کتابی بود که برای منی که حتی تخصصم ادبیات نیست خوندنی بود. نقدهایی که در مورد گودمن مطرح شده در این کتاب دیوانه وار دوست داشتنی هست. از این ها گذشته از ترجمه ی روان خانم طاهری هم نباید گذشت. توصیه میکنم به همه

    5. Always question everything. There is nothing absolute in this world but the fact that this world is socially or culturally constructed, and since it is merely a construction, you will always be able to deconstruct it. Are the whites the superior ones? Are male better than female? Read this handbook and it will open your window to a better perspective in viewing life, which broadly captured in literary works.

    6. منبع غنی‌ای برای گسترش علم و د‌‌‌انش اد‌‌‌بی هر خوانند‌‌‌ه‌ی مشتاق کتاب د‌‌‌‌ارای شش فصل است.د‌‌‌ر پنج فصل،توضیح مبانی ونقد د‌‌‌ر چهار اثر اد‌‌‌بی پیاد‌‌‌ه می‌شود‌‌‌ به معشوق عشوه‌سازش-هملت-گود‌‌‌من براون جوان-ماجراهای هاکلبری فین ‌فصل ششم هم به توضیح چ [...]

    7. This book is really interesting to use in order to understand many of the different literary approaches. I like how they use six different works (Hamlet, Frankenstein, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, "Everyday Use", "Young Goodman Brown", and "To His Coy Mistress") to help explain the literary approaches. Having the textbook provide some of the examples really helped me understand how to apply the literary approaches.

    8. This is a practical, readable, and balanced book on literary criticism. Considering how few books on literary criticism can claim even one of those adjectives, it deserves recognition. The chapters are generally well organized, save for the odd grouping under "Materialisms." It contains practical applications of many of the theories, although is thinner on some of them than others. However, its practice of using the same six texts (three included and the other three highly familiar) for analysis [...]

    9. A good overview of the various schools of literary criticism, including the historical/ biographical, psychological (Freudian, Jungian, etc.), deconstructionist, and formalist, among others. It will help you to understand the different ways critics approach literature and the presuppositions form which they come; it will also give you tools for analyzing literature in different ways. It offers concrete examples of the approaches as applied to selections of literature, so you can see how they "lo [...]

    10. I didn't read the entire thing, just various excerpts for classes but I gotta say I love the way this is written - the formalists chapter starts with application of the approach and that really helps to grasp how formalism works. And so on. I really dig that this isn't just a dry theory, but the examples help the reader to understand it.I have read a LOT of theoretical papers and works about literary criticism and interpretation and so far this one is the most helpful and easiest to understand.

    11. An excellent presentation of literary criticism through the ages. If you want to improve your reading and are serious about it, this book provides you with a detailed explanation of how to do it. Written with an academician's flair, don't let the heady terminology prevent you from continuing. For me, it was like going to graduate school all over again- a joy!

    12. This book was very important to my English degree background. As a college freshmen, I took a course where we examined one text for the course and looked at in through various lenses. This book helped me to learn all the different critcal approaches, particularly my favorite the archtypal. I often wish that my freshmen were ready for me to teach this to them.

    13. An excellent guide for applying theoretical, critical approaches to Literature. Formalism is covered, as well as Postcolonial Theory, Structuralism, Marxism, Feminism, and others. Recommended!Elaine.

    14. I learned nothing. This was for school and it sucked, but I tried really hard to pretend I like it and I think that might actually come off well when my teacher reads my annotations in English. But I still learned nothing.

    15. مباني نقد ادبيكتابي ست از ويلفرد گرين از دانشگاه لوئيزيانا لي مورگان و ارل ليبر و جان ويلينگهم از دانشگاه كانزاس1 ماهيت و حوزه شيوه هاي سنتي2كاربرد شيوه هاي سنتي3شيوه شكل مدارانه شيوه روانشناختيو

    16. This book was a textbook for a class about literary theory. It was extremely helpful, and for the most part coherent. However, there were a few chapters that I had to read several times before I fully understood them.

    17. نقد اسطوره شناسی و نمایه و روان شناختی رو خیلی دوست داشتم.یکی از بهترین مرجع ها در مورد این موضوع همین کتابه.

    18. Purchased for a class, rarely used--professor had us read other critical essays instead, because he disagreed with this author's explanation of the different critical methods/theories.
