A work of technical skill as well as outstanding literary merit em Structuralist Poetics em was awarded the James Russell Lowell Prize of the Modern Language Association It was during the writing of this book that Culler developed his now famous and remarkably complex theory of poetics and narrative and while never a populariser he nonetheless makes it crystal clear within these pages, Roland Barthes was the leading figure of French Structuralism the theoretical movement of the s which revolutionized the study of literature and culture as well as history and psychoanalysis But Barthes was a man who disliked orthodoxies His shifting positions and theoretical interests make him hard to grasp and assess This book surveys Barthes work in clear accessible prose highlighting what is most interesting and important in his work today In particular the book describes the many projects which Barthes explored and which helped to change the way we think about a range of cultural phenomena from literature fashion wrestling and advertising to notions of the self of history and of nature br, What is Literary Theory Is there a relationship between literature and culture In fact what is Literature and does it matter These are the sorts of questions addressed by Jonathan Culler in a book which steers a clear path through a subject which is often perceived to be impenetrable It offers insights into theories about the nature of language and meaning whether literature is a form of self expression or a method of appeal to an audience and outlines the ideas behind a number of different schools deconstruction semiotics postcolonial theory and structuralism amongst them, What sort of thing is a lyric poem An intense expression of subjective experience The fictive speech of a specifiable persona i Theory of the Lyric i reveals the limitations of these two conceptions of the lyric the older Romantic model and the modern conception that has come to dominate the study of poetry both of which neglect what is most striking and compelling in the lyric and falsify the long and rich tradition of the lyric in the West Jonathan Culler explores alternative conceptions offered by this tradition such as public discourse made authoritative by its rhythmical structures and he constructs a more capacious model of the lyric that will help readers appreciate its range of possibilities br br i Theory of the Lyric i constitutes a major advance in our understanding of the Western lyric tradition Examining ancient as well as modern poems from Sappho to Ashbery in many European languages Culler underscores lyric s surprising continuities across centuries of change its rhythmical resources its strange modes of address its use of the present tense and the intriguing tension between its ritualistic and fictional dimensions He defends the idea of lyric as a genre against recent critiques arguing that lyrics address our world rather than project a fictional world and also challenging the strongly established assumption that poems exist to be interpreted i Theory of the Lyric i concludes with a discussion of how to conceive the relations between lyric and society in ways that would acknowledge and respond to lyric s enduring powers of enchantment
