From the publisher’s description:
This introduction provides a brief and precise introduction to the basics of studying English-American literary studies: the key approaches to literary theory, the genres of novel, poetry, drama and film, as well as the central epochs of literary history are presented in an overview. The chapters on the literature search and the writing of seminar papers as well as the bibliography have been completely redesigned for the new 2007 edition with a view to new media such as the Internet and online databases. A user-friendly glossary of the most important technical terms provides quick information and helps prepare for exams. The introduction is particularly suitable for first-year students as a working basis for courses and for self-study.
