Dictionnaire de termes littéraires utiles pour les premières années d'études de langue. Concis et clair. C'est un dictionnaire, donc pas vraiment d'appréciations à partager...

HASH(0xdc3e94b0) étoiles sur 5 An excellent, but not flawless, resource 17 novembre 2000
Par Michael J. Mazza - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
"The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Literary Terms" is an excellent reference work for students of literature or cultural studies, or for anyone who wants to enrich his or her vocabulary with a variety of fascinating terms. Beginning with "the absurd" and ending with "zeugma," Chris Baldick has assembled a marvelous bestiary of literary terms and has provided concise explanations of each one.
Baldick's choices cover a wide range of history, geography, and ideology--from the Senecan tragedy to the campus novel, from the haiku to the Petrarchan sonnet, from Romanticism to Russian Formalism. Particularly useful is his inclusion of many originally non-English terms: "Sturm und Drang," "bricolage," and many more.
Of course, no project of this nature can be exhaustive, particularly when it is crammed into 246 pages. And yet, I wonder at the rationale behind some of Baldick's inclusions and omissions. Why, for example, is there an entry for Homeric, but none for Dickensian? For the Harlem Renaissance, but not for the Black Arts Movement? For Brechtian, but not for Kafkaesque? For logocentrism, but not for phallocentrism? For science fiction, but not for horror? For braggadocio, but not for tragic mulatta?
Nevertheless, this is still one of my favorite reference works. So if you're planning a Festschrift, if you're contemplating a revival of Vorticism, or if you want to spice up your latest jeremiad with some Spoonerisms, check out this book. It will make you feel like a true skald!

HASH(0xdc3efedc) étoiles sur 5 Handy desktop reference, esp for novices 7 juin 2003

This is a quite serviceable dictionary, with 1000-odd entries. At only 250 pages, however, the treatment of complex terms, schools, and issues must often be cursory. This second edition, is however, nicely updated from the 1990 first edition, and presents a more readable typeface on better paper. Being relatively small, it may be the most convenient literary dictionary to keep by your side. For a similar investment, however, you might consider the vastly more thorough 1000-page PENGUIN Dictionary of Literary Terms and Literary Theory (4th edn by Cuddon & Preston, 1998, ISBN: 0140513639 ) - possibly out of print as of this writing, but a bargain reference at the used price being asked by some Amz connections [ perhaps Penguin is on verge of releasing a 5th edition? ].
For more *depth* of coverage for important literary concepts and controversies, serious literary students will more appreciate the BEDFORD Glossary of Critical and Literary Terms (Murfin & Ray, 1998). While the Oxford aims more at comprehensiveness in including terms (so that the reader can find "memoir-novel" and "misprision" for example), the Bedford strives for depth of explorations and interrelations of terms (a dictionary that could be considered "authored" as well as edited) - see review at ISBN 0312115601 .
In summary, OXFORD is a *concise* dictionary; PENGUIN is a comprehensive dictionary; BEDFORD is a stimulating exploration and integration of terms and concepts.

HASH(0xdc3f107c) étoiles sur 5 Tool For English Majors 30 mai 2003
Par A.Trendl HungarianBookstore.com - Publié sur Amazon.com

Literary dictionaries are usually tough nuts to crack. By the nature of the book, there is an educated obscurity to most of the terms. "The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Literary Terms" conquers this by displacing the less useful words with very readable definitions of the words the book lists.

For example, 'plurisignation,' a somewhat difficult word to say, sends the reader, sans definition, to 'ambiguity,' which enjoys a more sensible, approachable definition.

Finishing the book is 'zeugma,' which Baldick describes as a figure of speech "by which one word refers to two others in the same sentence." He gives us a taste of William Shakespeare in a sample of a zeugma, "Give them thy fingers, me thy lips to kiss."

It is adequately cross-referenced, and is accessible for browsing without becoming lost in heady terms.

Who should read this? Any college freshman studying literature. This is a solid handbook, and is begging to be used in classrooms, taught letter-by-letter, entry-by-entry. Knowing these terms (about 1,000 in all) will clear up a lot of headaches while reading literary criticism and essays.

I fully recommend "The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Literary Terms" by Chris Baldick.

HASH(0xdc3f08e4) étoiles sur 5 Indispensable 26 juillet 2005
Par C. Daly - Publié sur Amazon.com

You won't find everything in here. But the omissions are so few that you probably won't notice. Anacoluthon? Here. Aposiopesis? Here. Practically every unusual and obscure literary term you could need info on, as well as capsule summaries of the common terms you might need to check on...Magic Realism, post-structuralism, Surrealism, and so on. This is an ideal reference and at the least a good starting point for deeper investigations. (My comments are on the 1990 edition.)

I am an English literature teacher. As I was getting ready to teach poetry for the first time, I realized I needed a concise resource booklet of literary terms. Though it is possible to find any term you are interested in on the Internet, it is not nearly as convenient as having a book in hand. Also, I have learned quite a few new terms simply flipping through it. I have used this book now for years as a teacher and found it to be invaluable.
