About the book:

2038--Culler explicates how Saussure's Cours in General Linguistics came to be. He also places the concepts of Structuralism and Semiotics in easy to understand words. This is a fabulous text for anyone who is new to Literary Theory. I read this during a required course for my English BA - Contemporary Critical Theory. Being completely new to the idea of structuralism and semiotics, Culler's explanation put it in a light that not only blew my mind but was easy to understand. It does not take much reading of Culler to understand exactly why Saussure's Cours in General Linguistics is such a game changer for how we perceive literature today! [wikipedia]
