HOW TO READ LITERATURE LIKE A PROFESSOR

A Lively and Entertaining Guide to Reading Between the Lines

By Thomas C. Foster. With wit, clarity, and insight, this volume gives readers tools to decipher literature beyond a literal level. When is a journey a heroic quest? When is rainfall about more than atmospheric disturbance? Discussing the heroic quest, the interplay of symbol and theme, image and character, and idea and structure, the author describes how readers can uncover multiple meanings in literature. Referring to specific works of literature such as Huck Finn, Dubliners, Heart of Darkness, and many others, the author successfully marries insight with humor. Grades 9 and up. Index. Reading list. Harper Perennial. 336 pages. Revised edition. ©2014.literaryterms
