Présentation de l'éditeur

The best-selling Oxford Dictionary of Literary Terms (formerly the Concise dictionary) provides clear, concise, and often witty definitions of the most troublesome literary terms from abjection to zeugma. It is an essential reference tool for students of literature in any language. It is now available in a new and expanded edition and includes increased coverage of new terms from modern critical and theoretical movements, such as feminism, and schools of American poetry, Spanish verse forms, life writing, and crime fiction. It includes extensive coverage of traditional drama, versification, rhetoric, and literary history, as well as updated and extended advice on recommended further reading and a pronunciation guide to more than 200 terms. New to this edition are recommended entry-level web links updated via the Dictionary of Literary Terms companion website.

Oxford Dictionary of Literary Terms 24 mai 2009
Par Sarah Winn - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The Oxford Dicionary of Literary Terms is a reference anyone who writes or reads literature or poetry should have on their shelves. It includes Latin and Greek terms for drama, more words describing poetry than I knew existed, and covers both classic literature and modern genre fiction.

Excellent resource for literature teachers and students 16 mai 2013
Par Z Hayes - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
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.

Used This to Prepare for Analyzing and Intepreting Lit CLEP Exam 23 janvier 2012
Par Melissa - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Very inexpensive yet comprehensive. Needed to brush up on the vocabulary of literature and its analysis and interpretation prior to sitting for the associated CLEP examination. Becoming familiar with the contents of this book allowed me to sail through the test (which included the composition portion at my university) and earn the credits without having to take the courses.
Highly recommend.

Interesting and informative 23 décembre 2012

This is a very useful addition to my professional library. The style is easy to read and understand even when the terms dealt with aren't.

Useful and Easy to Use Reference Tool 17 août 2014
Par Lucy's Mom - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
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.
