From Jacques Derrida's différance to Henry James's ficelle, the vocabulary of literary theory and criticism can seem difficult if not opaque. To help remedy the average reader's bafflement, this new Third Edition of The Oxford Dictionary of Literary Terms provides succinct and often witty explanations of almost twelve hundred terms, covering everything from the ancient dithyramb to the contemporary dub poetry, from the popular bodice-ripper to the aristocratic masque, and from the social realism of Stalin's era to the magic realism of Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Shedding light on some of the most troublesome literary terms encountered by students and general readers, this gem of a book offers increased coverage of many new coinages from modern critical and theoretical movements. It also provides extensively updated coverage of traditional drama, rhetoric, literary history, and textual criticism. Throughout, the author's emphasis is on helping readers use these terms more confidently, whether in writing or in speaking (easy-to-use pronunciation guides clarify more than 200 potentially troublesome terms). In addition, the dictionary is thoroughly cross-referenced and now offers web links accessed via a regularly updated companion website. A model reference book, The Oxford Dictionary of Literary Terms will prove invaluable for both general readers and literature students at all levels.

This is an excellent dictionary of literary terms. I especially like that the electronic version is very easy to use since it allows the user to toggle back and forth between the definitions and the overall list of terms. I ordered it for a class I'm teaching and plan to encourage students to purchase the electronic version. These days, so many students use their phones as readers (their eyes MUST be better than mine), a practice I discourage because it's easier to reference pages in a print version in class. In the case of The Oxford Dictionary of Literary Terms, having it on their phones would be an excellent idea, an always present reference tool.

I was looking for a resource on literary terms and was glad when I came across this little gem of a book. "The Oxford Dictionary of Literary Terms" is paperback-sized and contains over 1,200 literary terms with well-defined entries. It is alphabetically-arranged and though not an exhaustive work (it is not a catalog of all known literary terms), it does cover a lot of the literary terms in use today.

This dictionary is useful in explaining literary terms to readers in a manner that is accessible, even to a layperson. A lot of the terms are accompanied by a pronunciation guide next to the word, followed by the definition. However, this alone doesn't merit the five stars I've assigned to this work. I especially appreciated the brief details accompanying the definition for a particular term which provides insights as to the context within which the word is used. For example, the term "anaphora" is defined thus:

anaphora [a-naf-ŏ-rӑ] A rhetorical *figure of repetition in which the same word or phrase is repeated in (and usually at the beginning of) successive lines, clauses, or sentences. Found very often in both verse and prose, it was a device favoured by Dickens and used frequently in the *free verse of Walt Whitman. These lines by Emily Dickinson illustrate the device:

Mine - by the Right of the White Election!
Mine - by the Royal Seal!
Mine - by the Sign in the Scarlet prison
Bars - cannot conceal!

Adjective: anaphoral or anaphoric. See also EPISTROPHE.

It's these attention to details that makes this a valuable resource on literary terms. Recommended for anyone with an interest in literature, and especially for teachers and students of literature.

I needed this as reference for my literary reading. It is always good to be able to refer back to this dictionary when analyzing text especially poetic text such as my Walt Whitman or James Joyce. I used to have this type of text in my REAL library and would access it when reading ....clearly the accessibility with the Kindle and WHILE READING is such an asset. I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT....I can several reference texts or books available during the reading of any novel or text.......I AM IN LOVE WITH MY KINDLE and I LOVE OXFORD ANYTHING....best digital reference ....as ALWAYS BEING BEST REFERENCE ALWAYS....

I ordered this to help with my literature classes and it exceeded all my expectations! The book arrived on time and in great condition. I would recommend this to any literature lover.
The Oxford Dictionary of Literary Terms is an excellent resource that clearly explains wordage assocated with literature. It provides definitions and examples. I initially order the book on my Kindle, but discovered that it did not have a word search-by- spelling capability like other Kindle dictionaries. This was disappointing, so I ordered the paperback which is much easier to use.
