Studying Literature: A Student's Guide to Reading &hellip by Derek Soles
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
I found this book to be a clear, concise and comprehensive guide to the study of literature, especially when read in conjunction with another volume in the 'Studymates' series, namely: 'Studying Poetry' by Richard Cochrane. A very useful feature is the inclusion of a list of web sites for literature students.
Although this book is targetted at A level students of English literature it would also provide a very valuable introduction to literary studies and literary criticism for those undergraduates embarking on the study of the literature of any language with no previous training in literary studies.

4.0 out of 5 stars 501 Arabic Verbs, 24 July 2009
The good features of this book are: (1) The large number of verbs included, (2) The indexing of verbs both by whole word and by root order, (3) The introductory notes, (4) The inclusion of exemplary sentences, (5) The inclusion of the English meaning of each verb. The book would have been more user friendly were it to include an index of verbs by type and form and employ a format of one complete verb per page. Both of these features appear in '201 Arabic Verbs' by the same author.
