The fifth edition of J.A. Cuddon's classic dictionary updates what has become an indispensable resource for students and teachers at all levels. Incorporating recent literary terminology, the new edition adds many new entries while refining existing topics to ensure currency and balance of coverage. Building on the already broad historical and cultural range, new entries pay particular attention to gender studies and queer theory, post-colonial theory, post-structuralism, post-modernism, narrative theory, and cultural studies. Replete with new entries and sensitive edits of existing material, this fifth edition places the charm and wit of Cuddon's original work firmly in the 21st Century.
