"First published in 1994, this title has established itself as one of the main references in the field, through well-written, in-depth articles on critics, schools, periods, and critical innovations of specific countries and ethnic traditions. This edition maintains the format, scope, structure, and quality of its predecessor, while adding 45 new entries." (E.S. Hierl, Choice Reviews Online)  

"The second edition of The Johns Hopkins Guide to Literary Theory and Criticism is a massive accomplishment. . . . The new version of the Guide will provide a new generation of scholars and students with an exhaustive reference, but it will also serve as a valuable and critical measurement of the discipline." (Michael Kramp)
