GEA Resources for Students

  • Recommended Guides to TheoryOne of the most difficult aspects of transitioning to graduate coursework is the feeling that one suddenly has to know everything about that amorphous body of texts, thinkers, and terms that goes by the name of “theory.” Professors (and fellow students) are tossing around names and words that aren’t exactly right there on the tip of your tongue, even if they are not completely unknown to you. The GEA has developed a brief guide to the many resources that can help you get a handle on the history, major figures, and key terms in literary theory.
