Description


Over 1,000 entries. Containing over 1,000 of the most troublesome literary terms encountered by students and general readers, this gem of a book gives clear and often witty explanations to terms such as hypertext, multi-accentuality, and postmodernism. It is fully updated to include terms that have become prominent in the last few years, including antanaclasis, cohesion, focalization, log-rolling, and raisonneur. Terms from languages and literature other than English are given, as are pronunciation guides for over 200 difficult terms.
