The information below is meant merely as a guide or introduction to modern literary theories and trends. New Additions: Page updated January 19, 2003. New Criticism A literary movement that started in the late 1920s and 1930s and originated in reaction to traditional criticism that new critics saw as largely concerned with matters extraneous to the text, e.g., with the biography or psychology of the author or the work's relationship to literary history. New Criticism proposed that a work of literary art should be regarded as autonomous, and so should not be judged by reference to considerations beyond itself. A poem consists less of a series of referential and verifiable statements about the 'real' world beyond it, than of the presentation and sophisticated organization of a set of complex experiences in a verbal form (Hawkes, pp. 150-151).

    LAWYERS AND LITERATURE Four Warnings about Theory: " The way we read now partly depends upon our distance, inner or outer, from the universities, where reading is scarcely taught as a pleasure, in any of the deeper senses of the aesthetics of pleasure." [Harold Bloom, How to Read and Why 22 (New York: Scribner, 2000)] "I teach English in a distinguished university. In my distinguished department, which is like ll English departments I have known or heard about, we have virtually nothing in common, not even literature." [Frank Lentricchia, The Edge of Night: A Confession 11 (New York: Random House, 1994)] [Lentricchia teaches at Duke University, or so it is rumored.] "Since literature seemed to be about everything that there is about the human conditionI figured that a good literary critic would have to make himself expert at that big picture. It didn't take me long to realize that the professionalization of literary criticism has taken reductionism as its model, and that it too can lead to learning more and more about less and less until you're in danger of knowing everything there is to know about nothing." [Richard Powers, "The Last Generalist: An Interview with Richard Powers"]

    Hermeneutics in the Ninteenth Century in The Johns Hopkins Guide to literary theory and criticism
    1. Nineteenth Century
    Hermeneutics, as opposed to exegesis, is the theory, rather than the practice, of interpretation. Initially concerned with how we interpret texts, hermeneutics in the nineteenth century becomes the theory of understanding itself, dealing with texts only as one example of the event of understanding between persons. Developed originally as a biblical discipline, it begins with the problem of a distance between text and reader that renders meaning opaque. But beginning in the late eighteenth century, when Johann Gottfried Herder introduces an awareness of cultural relativism, and when the expansion of hermeneutics to the study of secular scriptures changes the understanding not only of the classics but also of the Bible as text, this distance comes to be seen in cultural and historical rather than theological terms. Despite the impediment of cultural and historical differences between author and reader, nineteenth-century hermeneutics often has as an ideal the recovery of the text's "true" meaning. Twentieth-century theorists see such differences as constitutive of a text whose meaning is culturally variable. However, we must be wary of drawing too rigid a line between Romantic and modern hermeneutics, not only because the notion of a fixed meaning still has adherents today but also because many of the ideas of such major contemporary theorists as Hans-Georg Gadamer and Paul Ricoeur are explicitly or embryonically present in their precursors.

    Literary Criticism, Political Theory and Online Texts
    R alph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) was the leading figure in American transcendentalism. As a philosopher, essayist and poet, he set the intellectual tone of New England letters in his own time, and of American literature since. He is the original expression of American pragmatism.
    His friends included Margaret Fuller, Henry David Thoreau, and Thomas Carlyle. He knew Nathaniel Hawthorne and Walt Whitman. His influence is evident in the tradition of American pragmatism in thinkers such as William James and John Dewey. Friederich Nietzsche carried a well-marked copy of Emerson's Essays with him for years. He was perhaps most widely known in his own day from the hundreds of public lectures he gave on the traveling speaker's circuit.

    The differences between Literary Criticism,

    John Lye 1998. Prepared for my ENGL 4F70, Contemporary Literary Theory , course. Comments welcome, e-mail me at
    I: 'Literary criticism
    Literary criticism is fundamentally the estimation of the value of a particular work or body of work on such grounds as: the personal and/or cultural significance of the themes and the uses of language of a text; the insights and impact of a text; and the aesthetic production (or, performance) of the text; particularly as these areas are seen to be mutually dependent, supportive or inflective. The word 'criticism' has ordinary-use negative connotations, and to an extent that is right: for literary criticism is part of the disciplining of discourse generally and of what is considered literature in particular. One patrols the boundaries of good writing, admitting or excluding, determining what should be thought about a text, and why, what personal and cultural value should be placed on it. Judgments of value are not simple, however. They require that one consider what constitutes value, what the personal and social value of literature is, what the value of 'the aesthetic' is. And they require that one interpret the text. As texts judged to be of high literary value tend to be marked by complexity and even ambiguity, and to yield diverse interpretations, judgment may ultimately require a theory of interpretation, or at least careful attention to the question of what constitutes, guides, and legitimates interpretation.

    Hermeneutics in the Twentieth Century in The Johns Hopkins Guide to literary theory and criticism
    2. Twentieth Century
    In the twentieth century, the central innovation in hermeneutics is associated with the work of Martin Heidegger (1889-1976) and his student Hans-Georg Gadamer (b. 1900). The general shift they advocated can be summarized in three areas. First, in contrast to the tradition since at least the Enlightenment, hermeneutics no longer concerns itself exclusively with the understanding and interpretation of written documents or speech. Second, unlike in Romantic hermeneutic theory from Friedrich Schleiermacher to Wilhelm Dilthey, the aim of understanding is not focused on the communication with or the psychology of another person. Third, the hermeneutics of Heidegger and Gadamer explores a realm that is prior to or more fundamental than Dilthey's separation of the natural sciences from the human sciences. Twentieth-century hermeneutics takes leave of the epistemological arena in which previous theories of understanding operated and moves into the area of "fundamental ontology," to use Heidegger's phrase. This means that understanding is not to be conceived transitively; we are not concerned with understanding something. Rather understanding is grasped as our way of being-in-the-world, as the fundamental way we exist prior to any cognition or intellectual activity. Ontological hermeneutics thus replaces the question of understanding as knowledge about the world with the question of being-in-the-world.
    Heidegger's essential contribution to hermeneutic theory occurs in
