The Literary in Theory - Jonathan Culler (278 words)
Jonathan Culler is the Class of 1916 Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Cornell University and one of the most influential literary critics in North America.
Culler’s vision of literary studies is inclusive and cumulative: it reminds us that ‘learning’ is both a noun and a verb, both a result and a process.
Culler’s account of the fortunes of the literary in theory, of the resistance to theory, and of key theoretical concepts—text, sign, interpretation, performative, and omniscience—provides valuable insight into today’s theoretical debates; and his analysis of various disciplinary practices explores the possibilities of theory for the present and the future.
