Theoretical Inquiry

Austin E. Quigley

Yale University Press

This chapter argues that literary theory, literary history, and literary criticism are, in pluralistic terms, complementary rather than alternative forms of discourse whose productive modes of interaction can be variously exemplified but not restrictively defined. Though each may suggest big inclusive pictures or remind us of big pictures from the past, each can flourish only by encouraging local pictures to interact in ways that make larger discovery possible.

Keywords:   literary theory, literary history, linguistic theory, literary criticism, pluralism
