Literary Terms: A Practical Glossary
Literary Terms: A Practical Glossary provides up-to-date definitions, drawing on recent developments in literary theory and emphasizing the role of reading practices in the reproduction of literary meanings. Unlike other glossaries, it includes brief activities to help students develop a working knowledge of the concepts. With examples drawn from classic literary sources as well as from popular books, films, and television shows, Literary Terms is an excellent resource for high school teachers interested in strengthening their own as well as their students' appreciation and understanding of the complexities of literary study.
