The twentieth century saw the rise of so many
literary theories in the West which grew up and
developed under the profound influence of Saussurean
linguistics presented in the seminal work of the
Course in General Linguistics (1916). The influence
is actually constituted by the basic conceptions of
Saussurean linguistics. This book aims at presenting
each of the Saussurean basic conceptions, displaying
how these conceptions have been applied to the
literary theories, and analyzing the causes of the
impact. This book will be useful to those who are
interested in both Saussurean linguistics and its
impact on literary theories.
