Description
"These lectures demonstrate how to read fiction carefully for full enjoyment. The lectures begin with basic concepts from simpler stories before progressing into books famous for their complexity. The lectures explain literary devices such as irony and foreshadowing and show how skilled authors have used such devices to great effect in classic works of literature."--P. [4] of guidebook cover.
