This set of TOCs allows students to focus on key topics shared by critics and traditions across the history of criticism. Specific thematic, formal, and generic issues are alphabetically arranged, followed by those works in which each concern is emphasized. A preliminary list of these concerns is below, with links to examples of selections gathered for three topics:
allegory, author, class, consciousness, criticism, divinity, drama, emotion, evaluation, gender, genius, history, imagination, mimesis, morality, nature, novel, perception, poetry, reader, realism, society, structure, text, truth.
- Selections in chronological order
