5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Essential for Lovers of Literature 17 de noviembre de 2005

Every student of literature should have their own copy of this book. Non-students would get a lot out of this too. And while the price might appear excessive, I think in the long-term this book is a worthwhile investment. What makes this guide of literary terms different from others, is its comprehensiveness. Abrams goes into great detail on the important terms that one comes across most often in literature. There is information on theories and movements in criticism and terms such as modernism and post modernism, are clearly defined. there is also material on symbolism, metaphor and other figures of speech and so on. A Glossary of Literary Terms, now in its 8th edition, is written in a lucid style, and is a must buy for anyone who wants to expand their literary horizons. Recommended. 5 stars.

I've used the 6th edition of this book for my research and own person edification for almost 5 years now. Abrams writes in a clear, understandable style that manages to enlight rather than confuse the reader. I've used other books like this one and they either give too little information or so much information that the reader is overwhelmed. Abrams manages to strike a perfect balance that gives you enough info to allow to be familiar with a topic and he offers suggestions for further reading if you want to know more.
This book is essential for any English major or graduate student.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Top reference book! 30 de octubre de 2003
Por Seth - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa blanda
There is nothing in this book that is not in any other literary terms book. However, it's the quality, not quantity (isn't that what they always say? Well, it's true this time). The way that terms are defined makes sense to everyone, not just the avid writer or reader of literature.
For example, look up 'Heroic Couplets' elsewhere and you'll find broad, vague definitions with little or no description. Well, think again when it comes to Mr. Abrams version of interpretation. Also, the way the book is structured is clever in itself. When looking up one definition, it leads to other words that are unknown, thus making full use of the book.
If you have any desire to write or just want a better understanding of what terms are being thrown at you in text, consult this gem. If you don't agree, contact me and I'll refund your money (okay, that was a joke). Wise investment.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas thorough and useful reference 11 de septiembre de 2003

Whether you are a student of literature or just looking to expand your understanding of it, you'll find this comprehensive yet accessible reference extremely useful. Abrams has compiled a fairly exhaustive glossary of (Western) literary terms. His succinct explanations are reinforced by familiar examples. When necessary, he also provides historical background to a word or phrase. Cross-referenced terms are highlighted within the descriptions, and the book includes an index of authors and of terms. This is a very easy reference to use, concise in its definitions, thorough in its content, and overall, well organized.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas The best book on literary terms I know 23 de julio de 2000
Por Manuel Haas - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa blanda
In contrast to other dictionaries or encyclopedias whose cramped style is barely readable, this Glossary of Literary Terms is a book to enjoy. There are little essays on all major literary terms; those which can only be understood in their context are included in essays of a different heading (e.g. "Bildungsroman" is one of the terms which are explained in the essay about the "novel"). At first sight this may seem a bit complicated, but in the long run it is a lot more efficient than the usual dictionary-style presentation.
Of course an advanced student of literature may sometimes miss some details - but those are details nobody would remember anyway. Mr Abrams only gives you the facts you really want to know and memorize. And he does this in a style of remarkable clarity and fluency. While this proves him to be a member of an old school of lit crit, the Glossary contains good introducitons to recent trends as well (postcolonial studies, gay and lesbian literature etc.)
I am thankful that I didn't have to study literature without Abrams' Glossary!
