Description: Genreis a key means by which we categorize the many forms of literature and culture. But it is also much more than that: in talk and writing, in music and images, in film and television, genres actively generate and shape our knowledge of the world. Understanding genre as a dynamic process rather than a set of stable rules, this book explores: · The relation of simple to complex genres · The history of literary genre in theory · The generic organization of implied meanings · The structuring of interpretation by genre · The uses of genre in teaching John Frow'slucid exploration of this fascinating concept will be essential reading for students of literary and cultural studies.
