Most widely held works by Jonathan D Culler
Literary theory a very short introduction by Jonathan D Culler( Book )
55 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,567 libraries worldwide
A brief introduction to literary theory that explores the various moves that literary theory has encouraged
Structuralist poetics : structuralism, linguistics, and the study of literature by Jonathan D Culler( Book )
70 editions published between 1975 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,891 libraries worldwide
This book introduces a new way of studying literature by attempting to create a systematic account of the structure of literary works, rather than studying the meaning of the work. It offers an overview and appraisal of contributions to literary theory of French structuralism and post- structuralism. Culler's new preface answers some of the criticisms leveled at his approach and details how it is still as relevant today as when it was first published
On deconstruction : theory and criticism after structuralism by Jonathan D Culler( Book )
81 editions published between 1982 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,749 libraries worldwide
With an emphasis on readers and reading, the author considers deconstruction in terms of the questions raised by psychoanalytic, feminist, and reader-response criticism. As a result, this book is both an authoritative synthesis of Derrida's thought and an analysis of the often-problematic relation between his philosophical writings and the work of literary critics
The pursuit of signs--semiotics, literature, deconstruction by Jonathan D Culler( Book )
67 editions published between 1980 and 2008 in English and held by 1,564 libraries worldwide
To gain a deeper understanding of the literary movement that has dominated recent Anglo-American literary criticism, The Pursuit of Signs is a must. In a world increasingly mediated, it offers insights into our ways of consuming texts that are both brilliant and bold. Dancing through semiotics, reader-response criticism, the value of the apostrophe and much more, Jonathan Culler opens up for every reader the closed world of literary criticism. Its impact on first publication, in 1981, was immense; now, as Mieke Bal notes, 'the book has the same urgency and acuity that it had then', though today it has even wider implications: 'with the interdisciplinary turn taking hold, literary theory itself, through this book, becomes a much more widespread tool for cultural analysis'

26 editions published between 1974 and 2006 in English and held by 1,270 libraries worldwide

Barthes : a very short introduction by Jonathan D Culler( Book )
31 editions published between 1983 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 736 libraries worldwide
"Roland Barthes (1915-80) was an 'incomparable enlivener of the literary mind' whose lifelong fascination was with 'the way people make their world intelligible'. He has a multifaceted claim to fame: to some he is the structuralist who outlined a 'science of literature', and the most prominent promoter of semiology; to others he stands not for science but pleasure, espousing literature which gives the reader a creative role." "He called for 'the death of the author', urging that we study not writers but texts, yet he himself published idiosyncratic books rightly celebrated as imaginative products of a personal vision." "Jonathan Culler elucidates the varied theoretical contributions of this 'public experimenter' and describes the many projects which Barthes explored."--BOOK JACKET

Grounds of comparison : around the work of Benedict Anderson by Pheng Cheah( Book )
8 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 156 libraries worldwide
Benedict Anderson, professor at Cornell and specialist in Southeast Asian studies, is best known for his book Imagined Communities: Reflections on the Origin and Spread of Nationalism (1991). It is no understatement to say that this is one of the most influential books of the last twenty years. Widely read both by social scientists and humanists, it has become an unavoidable document. For people in the humanities, Anderson is particularly interesting because he explores the rise of nationalism in connection with the rise of the novel
