Book Description Harper Perennial, 2003. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: 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 surface--a symbol, maybe, that remains elusive, or an unexpected twist on a character--and 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.

Book Description PERENNIAL, 2003. Book Condition: Neu. Neu Importqualität, auf Lager, Schnellversand mit dpd - What does it mean when a literary hero is traveling along a dusty road When he hands a drink to his companion When hes drenched in a sudden rain shower Most lay readers tend to stay on the surface of a book, and though theres much to enjoy there, the sneaking suspicion that we keep missing something -- a deeper meaning, a hidden truth, a twist on the ordinary -- prevails. A road, in a novel, poem or play, almost always symbolizes a quest of some kind, sharing a meal may signify a communion-like bond between two people, and rain is seldom just rain, but usually means a cleansing experience or a symbolic re-birth. This amusing and instructive guide to literature teaches us how to get more out of reading, simply by looking at literature with the eyes -- and the literary codes -- of the ultimate professional reader, the college professor. Ranging from the major themes (such as seasons, sex, vampires, violence, quests and geography), to literary models (the Bible, Shakespeare, Greek mythology and fairy tales), and narrative devices (irony, plot and symbol), HOW TO READ LITERATURE LIKE A PROFESSOR gives us a broad overview of literature and shows us how to make reading it more rewarding and fun.
