This book is my companion everywhere.
Peck has answered a lot of questions that I had, when trying to construct an OU assignment. He has explained how to close read and how to develop an essay. He has done so in a very explanatory way. His methods have a foundation upon which he builds on more complicated critical responses.

Format: Paperback
As with the others in the 'How to Study Literature' series, this is a great study aid for A-level students or English Literature undergraduates; this one focuses on the novel, and is accessible, comprehensive and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
