Myth, Truth and Literature is a theoretical study that aims to prove the superfluousness of literary theory. The author believes that we now require a "paradigm-shift" that will replace "structuralist" and "post-structuralist" literary theory and will reestablish the validity of such old-fashioned "Romantic" notions as intuition, imagination and inspiration.

Editorial Reviews

"Colin Falck's Myth, Truth and Literature prefigures the entire methodology of my Sexual Personae (1990). It reveals the future of literary criticism and shows the path out of now totally bankrupt French literary theory. Literary studies are in a period of chaos: the age of theory is over, but it's not clear what is taking shape. Falck's book is a map for the future." Camille Paglia, 1993
