Review from previous edition: "It is impossible to imagine a clearer treatment of the subject, or one that is, within the given limits of length, more comprehensive. Culler has always been remarkable for his expository skills, and here he has found exactly the right method and tone for his purposes." --Sir Frank Kermode
"A must read for all literature students." --Bookwise 24/03/2006
