Summary

In analyzing literary works within a conceptual framework, the student needs the freedom to choose from a variety of critical standpoints and to discover for himself various approaches to the literary symbol. To illustrate the necessity of movement from one theory to another, the theories are arranged in the following order: transcendental theory of archetypes, Aristotelian and Platonic realism, intentionalism, contextualism, pragmatism, and positivism. The rationale for the arrangement of the theories on a critical continuum is that it provides a conceptual structure for discussion about disparate theories of symbolism and illustrates how problems introduced by one mode of criticism can be handled by shifting to another critical approach.
