I think this must be the coolest Classics-related book I've seen so far this year:

Theory for Classics: A Student's Guide

This comes as part of a general discussion on my campus about why we don't seem to do theory in classics departments to any degree of detail, and just expect students to know about Foucault et al by some mysterious osmosis process from reading the published works of senior people in the field who do dabble.

On the one hand, I desperately want to teach a course using this as a primer; on the other hand, I desperately want to get my hands on it to see what it might be able to teach me!

Edit: Of course, no sooner do I open my mouth than I am directed to other people being clever over in [livejournal.com profile] classical_world (how did I miss that community?), who point me to Blackwell's Modern Literary Theory and Ancient Texts. Looks like something else to call out from the library...
