When you hear the word “theory,” you might think first of the natural sciences, rather than of literature. In the sciences, theories are systems for understanding how an aspect of the world works: they can be used to explain past.

Literary Theory & Beyond At Romance Studies we move beyond the study of the novel proper to encompass the broader category of narrative and its theoretical re-energizing brought about by the development of film studies, popular culture, Latin.

Theory of Literature is a book on literary scholarship by René Wellek, of the structuralist Prague school, and Austin Warren, a self-described "old New Critic".

This book explores the logic and historical origins of a strange taboo that has haunted literary critics since the s, keeping them from referring to the intentions of authors without apology.

The taboo was enforced by a seminal article, “The Intentional Fallacy,” and it deepened during the era of poststructuralist theory. Literary criticism (or literary studies) is the study, evaluation, and interpretation of literary criticism is often influenced by literary theory, which is the philosophical discussion of literature's goals and methods.

Though the two activities are closely related, literary critics are not always, and have not always been, theorists. Wittgenstein’s philosophical approach provides us with a strong means of developing such a method for literary criticism—a method that points the way forward beyond postmodern criticisms and to a categorically new approach to literary texts.

Brill’s work discusses at length the implications of Wittgenstein for literary criticism and theory. Steven Knapp, for example, has questioned the validity and value of contemporary literary theory’s denigration of formalism as a primitive interpretive methodology.

As the title of his thoughtful volume suggests, in Literary Interest: The Limits of Anti-Formalism () Knapp demonstrates the inherent limits of our collective rage against our.
