Sample text

William Wordsworth’s preface to the Lyrical Ballads in 1800 is considered to be, according to Peter Barry in Beginning Theory, “one of a number of significant critical works in literary theory whose immediate aim is to provide a rationale for the critic’s own poetic work, and to educate audiences for it” (Barry 2009, 22–3). Wordsworth’s poetry directly challenged what had previously been considered the accepted style and subjects for poetry, and he wrote his preface to prepare his audience for his revolution in poetics, claiming to be a “man writing to men” and justifying the use of a more accessible language for readers of his poetry.

What can be said about literature from a philosophical point of view? What is the nature of the act of literary composition? (Barry 2009, 25). The literary theory we use today comes from both of these tracks, the one focused entirely on the text, and the one that focuses on the text as well as its contexts. However, the latter track grew in popularity during the postwar period. Critical theory began to come in “waves” with each specific decade, all working against the traditional literary criticism, or liberal humanism, or the close textual reading schools of thought.
