Praise for the first edition:
'Ways of Reading is a valuable and immensely usable book ... more than fills a major gap.' – Literature & Language
'This is a clear and incisive introduction to main issues in the critical study of literature.' – Robin Jarvis, University of the West of England, UK
Over the last two decades significant debates have taken place concerning the nature and purpose of English studies. There is a growing need for materials which can help translate the emerging theoretical and analytic insights into practical methods of study. Ways of Reading offers an indispensible compendium of critical and analytic strategies to enrich the activity of reading across a range of different genres and periods, and on texts both literary and non-literary. It moves from smaller features of texts, such as rhyme, to larger features, such as story structure, from poetry to prose, from text to context. Combining theoretical and practical questions, it helps students of English in higher education develop an awareness of reading as a broader process. UPDATE SEE HB
