What does it mean when a fictional hero takes a journey?. Shares a meal? Gets drenched in a sudden rain shower? Often, there is much more going on in a novel or poem than is readily visible on the surfacea symbol, maybe, that remains elusive, or an unexpected twist on a characterand there's that sneaking suspicion that the deeper meaning of a literary text keeps escaping you.
In this practical and amusing guide to literature, Thomas C. Foster shows how easy and gratifying it is to unlock those hidden truths, and to discover a world where a road leads to a quest; a shared meal may signify a communion; and rain, whether cleansing or destructive, is never just rain. Ranging from major themes to literary models, narrative devices, and form, How to Read Literature Like a Professor is the perfect companion for making your reading experience more enriching, satisfying, and fun.

The book is boring and repetitive. I learned most of what it talked about in English class last year with my awesome teacher. However, my main complaint is not concerning the product itself. Shipping was slow, about 3 weeks. The book arrived in impeccable condition, but if I buy from Overstock again, I'll buy at least a month in advance.Read More
