I'm not sure if someone has already brought up this amazing resource, but Yale University has posted an entire semester worth of lectures for an Introduction to Theory of Literature Class. It's taught by this very well respected professor there, Paul Fry. I'm on the 4th lesson right now--and I'm so excited and thankful that this resource is available! Looks like this course is going to cover so many of the ideas I'm interested in: Heidegger, New Criticism, Russian Formalism, Deconstructionism, etc.
I was hoping some others would be interested in starting discussions on the videos! He is very, very clear--I don't have the text he uses and he has many handouts that I don't have access to either, but I still feel that I can somewhat understand what he is talking about. Maybe I will get the text, just for reading.
Anyway, here's the link:
