- How to Read Literature Like a Professor
- “The dialogue between old texts and new is always going on at one level or another. Critics speak of this dialogue as intertextuality, the ongoing interaction between poems or stories. This intertextual dialogue deepens and enriches the reading experience, bringing multiple layers of meaning to the text, some of which readers may not even consciously notice”
- Whelp, since this is an educational, nonfiction reference book, I’ll put a creative spin on it. So IF I were a English Lit professor, then heck yes, sign me up into that world! To talk with students about books and they symbols in them, what a dream! The way Foster lays out the keys to analyzing literature is quite comical.
