I have been dipping in and out of this behemoth during our year of plague. What a remarkable volume it is! Cuddon was a true intellect, a storehouse of literary knowledge, and he here tosses scraps of his enduring wisdom to we poor beggars at the feast. There are two things that make this stand out. First, Cuddon reminds us that we have forgotten how to be true literary omnivores. He will throw in half of a poem by Dryden or Crabbe or Manley Hopkins or Housman, reflect briefly on works from the Ancient Era through to the 1980s, and encourage us to be better, more accommodating readers. To treat Milton and Eliot on the same level, or Brecht and Osborne. Second, Cuddon reminds us that we have - in our own dispiriting 21st century way - forgotten how to love. Or, conversely, we have forgotten the theory of "aesthetic distance" - you'll need to look that up in this dictionary, but at heart it covers the notion of how attached we should get to a text's ideology and meaning to us personally, as opposed to its literary value and meaning intended by the author. Cuddon is not hung up on whether a movement, author, or philosophy quoted within fits with our modern sensibilities, nor whether it ticks a box on some well-meaning checklist. This is about quality and intent, nothing more.

Well, almost. Cuddon is also unashamedly personal; this is his work, and he'll damn sure make you aware of that! (At one point, he rather cheekily refers to "those poets who suffered from Imagism"!)

Bravo. ( )

Over the past twenty years J. A. Cuddon's "Dictionary of Literary Terms and Literary Theory" has become firmly established as a classic work of reference. Now in its fourth edition, complete with many new entries and insights, it remains the most comprehensive and accessible work of its kind and constitutes essential reading for students, teachers and general readers alike.

* Contains over 2000 articles on all aspects of literary terminology and theory
* Gives definitions of technical terms (iamb, hamartia, zeugma) and critical jargon (intertextuality, aporia, binary opposition)
* Explores literary movements (neo-classicism, romanticism, vorticism) and schools of literary theory (new historicism, structuralism, feminist criticism)
* Covers genres (elegy, fabliau, pastoral) and literary forms (sonnet, haiku, ottava, rima)

'Scholarly, succinct, comprehensive and entertaining, this is an important book, an indispensable work of reference. It draws on literature of many languages and quotes aptly and freshly from our own'
- The Times Educational Supplement

'Some entries accomplish cameo wonders of literary history. Others are funny ... generously and urbanely compiled'
- The New York Times

This is a fantastic resource for English teachers and students. Most entries are easily accessible for students at the college level. ( )

Ok, the book is quite *hefty*, but it does become very handy if you are studying for an English degree. I had a smaller one, but I ended up buying this one because I was losing out on some literary criticism terms. Some entries do takes a certain number of pages, and can be quite confusing, but other ones are fine, and the terms allowed me to understand some particularly complicated terms. This book will be kept on my shelves, because it has become an essential tool for my studies. ( )
