A Glossary of Literary Terms

A Glossary of Literary Terms

by M. H. Abrams (Editor)


The standard for over thirty years, A Glossary of Literary Terms, Seventh Edition, defines and discusses terms, critical theories, and points of view that are commonly applied to the classification, analysis, interpretation, and history of works of literature. Entries are arranged alphabetically. The glossary is oriented toward undergraduate students of English, American, and other literatures. Over the decades, the book has proved to be the clearest and most useful literary reference ever. Features: * All entries revised * References and supplementary readings updated * 20 new entries, including author and authorship, black arts movement, theories of metaphor, queer theory, postcolonial studies, and Harlem Renaissance * New arrangement of all entries--both Literary Terms and Modern Theories--into one alphabetical list to reflect the acceptance of modern literary and critical terminology into general usage * New index of authors and titles * Revised index of terms emphasised by adding colour to the outside margin
