A selection of close-readings of canonical English poems with a focus on ideas and debates in critical theory and literary history. Post-Structuralism and the Question of History. This book disentangles two terms that were conflated in the initial Anglo-American appropriation of French theory: deconstruction and poststructuralism.

What is needed now is a book which demonstrates in very concrete terms the possible application of post-structuralist theory to literary texts. This volume answers that need. A group of distinguished practitioners in the field have been invited to offer close readings of well-known poems from the established canon of English poetry. The texts chosen range from Renaissance sonneteers through Shakespeare, the Metaphysicals, the Augustan and Romantic periods, to Eliot and developments in the wake of modernism.

There has been a plethora of monographs and textbooks dealing with the many aspects of deconstruction and post-structuralist theory in recent years  . An extensive reference and bibliographical section will provide useful points, of entry for those who wish to pursue critical issues which the book will inevitably raise.

A group of leading critics have been invited to offer close readings of well-known poetic texts from the established canon of English literature. The volume is organised historically, with texts ranging from the Renaissance, Augustan and Romantic periods through to the twentieth century. All the essays are motivated by ideas and debates in critical theory and will prove a challenge to conventional valuations and ways of construing literary history. By combining theory and practical application, this volume should prove particularly helpful to those keen to pursue the implications of current critical theory.
