Thomas C. Foster’s How to Read Literature like a Professor—the perennial favorite for AP English classes—is now available in a thoroughly revised and updated edition! This amusing and instructive guide to literature teaches students how to get more out of reading, simply by looking at literature with the eyes and literary codes of the ultimate professional reader, the college professor. Ranging from the major themes (such as seasons, vampires, violence, quests and geography), to literary models (the Bible, Shakespeare, Greek mythology and fairy tales), and narrative devices (irony, plot and symbol), Foster’s book will teach your students to utilize close-reading techniques to search for the deeper literary meanings hidden in plain sight.
