Clear and lively definitions of more than 900 terms. The glossary presents the most up-to-date definitions of traditional literary terms, along with many new terms that reflect the new ways literature is being taught.

Examples from literature and popular culture. In addition to examples gathered from canonical and contemporary literature, the glossary uses hundreds of references to the popular culture that students know and enjoy.

A handy and simple reference. Arranged alphabetically, the entries are extensively cross-referenced. An index of authors and works allows quick access to examples cited in the entries.

An affordable price. With an affordable retail price, the Bedford Glossary is an inexpensive investment that students will use for years in their literature courses.

Thoroughly updated entries, plus seven substantial new entries covering contemporary genres and critical approaches. Up-to-date and revised coverage of critical approaches includes: expanded entries on ecocriticism and feminist criticism; substantial new entries on emerging fields and approaches such as digital humanities, intersectionality, posthumanism, and thing theory; current and expanded coverage of genres including new entries on flash fiction, manga, and steampunk.

Many more diverse and contemporary examples drawn from numerous genres. With illustrative examples drawn from novels such as Suzanne Collins's trilogy The Hunger Games, television series including Homeland and Game of Thrones, and the lyrics of Lin-Manuel Miranda's Hamilton, students can easily understand the definition and application of the terms.

Streamlined to reflect cultural shifts and emerging perspectives. Outdated discussions have been cut and definitions of traditional terms have been trimmed to make the fourth edition a more efficient and current reference.

Preface.- A Note on References and Cross-References.- List of Terms Defined in The Bedford Glossary.- Glossary of Critical and Literary Terms.- Index of Authors and Titles.
