4.0 out of 5 stars Practical advice on practical criticism for A level +, 7 Jan 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Practical Criticism (Palgrave Study Guides:Literature) (Paperback)
Very detailed, practical advice on tackling both unseen prose and poetry. Technical terms carefully explained and I particularly liked the example of writing about Dover Beach - the poem and the approach to writing about it were analysed. This is a very practical 'hands-on' approach to literature, especially useful for worried A-level students who want something to 'hang on to'. Useful too for a teacher who wants something concrete to say!

This review is from: Practical Criticism (Palgrave Study Guides:Literature) (Paperback)
I started an english lit course at cardiff in september and really struggled, uni is so different from college! this book explains exactly how to deconstruct poetry and extracts from novels in a straightforward, practical way, it is exactly what I was looking for. I can return from the christmas holiday a lot more confident than before!
