Colin Falck's book has had a widespread influence since it first appeared in 1989. Hailed as a work that alters the way we think about literary theory and its institutionalization in America and Britain, it is a philosophically informed account of the "paradigm-shift" required to replace structuralism and poststructuralism as modes of perceiving literature and related culture. Falck now supplements this second paperback edition with important new material opening up fresh horizons within the subject.

Industry Reviews

'Colin Falck's Myth, Truth and Literature prefigures the entire methodology of my Sexual Personae (1990). It reveals the future of literary criticism and shows the path out of now totally bankrupt French literary theory. Literary studies are in a period of chaos: the age of theory is over, but it's not clear what is taking shape. Falck's book is a map for the future.' Camille Paglia
