THE NEW CRITICAL IDIOM
SERIES EDITOR: JOHN DRAKAKIS, UNIVERSITY OF STIRLINGThe New Critical Idiom is an invaluable series of introductory guides to today’s critical terminology. Each book:
provides a handy, explanatory guide to the use (and abuse) of the term
offers an original and distinctive overview by a leading literary and cultural critic
relates the term to the larger field of cultural representation

With a strong emphasis on clarity, lively debate and the widest possible breadth of examples, The New Critical Idiom is an indispensable approach to key topics in literary studies.
