Book Description:
This concise but thorough introduction to criticism explores nine useful approaches to critical study, whether examining television, fiction, nonfiction, visual arts, or oral and written discourse. The perspectives presented bridge disciplinary boundaries and include: asking questions about how audiences process communication, understanding human symbol systems and social relations as vehicles for comprehending the world, value and narrative analysis, and psychoanalytic and ideological criticism. The easy to follow discussions of using each approach contain questions critics are most likely to ask, assumptions governing the approach, an exploration of sample analyses that reveal vocabulary most frequently used, and a review of the problems encountered by critics. The interplay of persuasion, poetic theory, and accurate interpretation allows readers to incorporate the most useful elements in their critiques and to borrow insights from one approach to clarify and strengthen another. Multiple examples are sprinkled throughout the book.
