Abstract: First paragraph: Not even its most passionate informed detractors quite regret theory, or dismiss it as a trivial fad. 'There is no doubt in my mind that Theory has really revitalized the study of literature since theSecond World War', writes Valentine Cunningham, in a book mainly lamenting the trite, mechanical, tactless readerly habits theory has undoubtedly spread. 'In many respects, reading is so much more alive under the impact of Theory than it was; texts have in many ways become so much more vividly present, so much richer and deeper, in their newly acquired valencies.'
