    Der Inhalt wird oben eingehend erläutertDas Buchg ist anspruchsvoll aber ein hervorragender Reader für jeden Anglisten oder anderssprachigen Literaturwissenschaftler David Lodge der bekannte Schriftsteller zeigt hier dass er nicht nur witzige und selbstironische Texte verfassen kann Der britische Literaturwissenschaftler hat in diesem Band Texte versammelt die man gelesen haben muss wenn man sich ernsthaft für englische literatur interessiert

    This is an interesting collection of articles on a range of critical approaches to literature The arrangement helps readers to find connections and contradictions as well as follow the trends and shifts in critical direction I think it is worth having on the shel for ready reference to 20th century schools of thought
