Summary
"A lively and entertaining introduction to literature and literary basics, including symbols, themes and contexts, that shows you how to make your everyday reading experience more rewarding and enjoyable. While many books can be enjoyed for their basic stories, there are often deeper literary meanings interwoven in these texts. [This book] helps us to discover those hidden truths by looking at literature with the eyes-- and the literary codes-- of the ultimate professional reader, the college professor."--Amazon.com
