Introducing Literature is a comprehensive introduction to literary analysis, criticism and theory. Ideal for senior secondary school or college students beginning a literature course, the book starts with basic principles and methods and leads to theorised approaches to literature study. It covers fundamental issues such as: definitions of literature; why we read literature; analysing text and context; creative responses; and current theories and issues.

The reference section includes essential background knowledge -- myths and legends to know, narrative schemas to know, twelve critical theories, and a timeline of English Literature. (Australian cover shown.)
