  • Description
  • A revolution took place in literary criticism in the 1980s. In a series of trenchant case-studies, The Critical Decade examines that revolution and assesses its consequences. It analyses deconstruction and post-structuralism and explores the relations between literature, society and politics. It discusses Jacques Derrida, Roland Barthes, Jean-Paul Sartre, Raymond Williams, Terry Eagleton, Perry Anderson, Jonathan Culler, Robert Scholes, Stanley Fish, J. Hillis Miller, Edward Said and Frederic Jameson. Wide-ranging and informed, lively and controversial, The Critical Decade is an essential contribution to the cultural debates of the 1990s.
