From the Publisher:

This 4th edition aims to retain the valuable features of the original book; brevity, even coverage of the main literary theories and useful further readings and bibliographies. At the same time the new edition adds new material on 'contemporary' literary theories, such as: cultural materialism, post-colonial theory, feminist theory, Black British, African-American, Asian, Caribbean theory, and Gay and Lesbian theory.

From the Back Cover:

The best of the many guides to literary theory that are currently available. Widdowson and Brooker chart a clear and comprehensively documented path through the full range of what is best in contemporary literary theory...indispensable for all students of literature...An impressive achievement!

John Drakakis, Stirling University

 

This Guide is as stimulating and instructive an introduction to [literary theory] as any reader might wish for.
