About this Unit
This unit examines a range of theoretical approaches to literature, the majority of which have proliferated since the beginning of the 20th century. These may include: structuralism, poststructuralism, feminism, postcolonialism, psychoanalysis and posthumanism. In presenting this ‘contemporary’ mode of engaging with literary texts, ‘Literary Theory’ asks how we might theorise our approach to reading, and how individual texts allow us to theorise the literary in general.
