"No other guide to theory combines Fry's authority and range with the accessibility and engaging, often humorous manner in which the reader is addressed; none connects the development of theory so tellingly with philosophy and history; none teases out the connections and divergences between and among theorists with such deft skill; and none moves so confidently between lucid summary of very challenging theoretical ideas and closely probing readings of particularly revealing passages in the theorists under discussion. The result is a book that, with its own unfolding narrative and infectiously conveyed urge to connect and to explain, is a genuine and intense pleasure to read."--Richard Jacobs, Principal Lecturer, School of Humanities, University of Brighton
