  Literary theory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Since theorists of literature often draw on a very heterogeneous tradition of Continental philosophy and the philosophy of language, any classification of their approaches is only an approximation.
Most theorists, even among those listed below, combine methods from more than one of these approaches (for instance, the deconstructive approach of Paul de Man drew on a long tradition of close reading pioneered by the New Critics, and de Man was trained in the European hermeneutic tradition).
By the early 1990s, the popularity of "theory" as a subject of interest by itself was declining slightly (along with job openings for pure "theorists") even as the texts of literary theory were incorporated into the study of almost all literature.

 The Wing Nut's Revenge - A conspiracy theorist has his day in court. By Dahlia Lithwick   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Allan J. Favish—an obsessive California conspiracy theorist who's been trying to get his hands on death-scene photographs of former Deputy White House Counsel Vincent Foster for almost a decade—is like every other zealot intent on arguing his own case before the high court: He's more interested in hogging the spotlight than in his legal claims.
Scalia presses Hamilton on one of the documents cited as proof of the cover-up, the so-called "Haut Report" in which Favish claims the word "neck" was whited out by conspirators and replaced with the word "head" to cover-up the fact that Foster was shot in the neck, and didn't kill himself.
Scalia, never afraid to call a wing nut a wing nut, tells Hamilton: "What he and other conspiracy theorists would say is that the fact that there were five investigations only shows the extent of the conspiracy."

 Feminist Daily News 5/18/2004: Pioneering Feminist Writer/Theorist Dies
Groundbreaking cultural theorist, Chicana writer, and feminist activist Gloria Anzaldua passed away on Saturday due to diabetes-related complications.
One of the first openly lesbian Chicana writers, Anzaldua’s book of poetry and prose, Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza was named among the best 100 books of the century by Hungry Mind Review and Utne and one of the best 38 books of 1987 by Library Journal.
Civil rights activist, theorist, and professor Angela Y. Davis called a collection of published interviews with Anzaldua (Interviews/Entrevistas) “impressive,” offering the reader “a sustained look at Gloria Anzaldua’s insistence on theorizing the personal and on infusing the political with the poetic — words that have shaped feminist theories and practices over the last two decades.”
