Book - 1977
Rate this:
The Fourth Edition of this classic dictionary has been thoroughly revised and updated to maintain its position as the most comprehensive and accessible work available. It has been improved throughout and expanded to include many new entries. The excellent coverage of the schools and terminology of literary theory is continued, without compromising coverage of more traditional critical terms and topics. Charles Cuddon's completed revision and updating have been overseen and developed by C. E. Preston of Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, with several of her colleagues. After more than 20 years, Cuddon's Dictionary of Literary Terms and Literary Theory remain 'a superlative work of reference that will also be read for pleasure', as it was acclaimed in 1976.
