Originally published in 1982, this is an anthology of studies by French literary theorists representing the most significant contributions to the field made in France in the preceding fifteen years. The essays were published here in English for the first time and cover, among other topics, the methodology of literary studies, the specifics of literary creation, the different facets and levels of the text, and the issues raised by the classification of literature into genres and periods. Biographical notes on the authors and an introduction are provided by the editor. The contributors all reflect in varying degrees the influence of structural linguistics, and this collection will be of value for all those, on whichever side of the debate, concerned with the impact and importance of this method of approach for the study of literature.
