I have my doubts about literary theory in general, but there's still some value for students in applying the various theories to different texts. By assimilating the principles of a theory and applying it, you're not only learning to rationalize your opinions (using examples) and acquiring knowledge, but you're training yourself to think using different perspectives, which is invaluable.
