Summary

This introductory book takes the reader through literary history from Renaissance to Postmodernism and considers individual texts as paradigms which can both reflect and unsettle their broader linguistic and cultural contexts.This introductory book takes the reader through literary history from Renaissance to Postmodernism, and considers individual texts as paradigms which can both reflect and unsettle their broader linguistic and cultural contexts.
