Description

Overview:
New Criticism is a movement that dominated Anglo-American academy for more than three decades, and is still has a powerful influence on contemporary critical practice, though its basic assumptions were variously contested after the advent of literary theory. New criticism is premised upon the concept of literary text as a closed entity, an autonomous object that can be studied and analyzed through a method of 'close reading'.
