How to Read Literature Like a ProfessorHow to Read Literature Like a Professor by Thomas C. Foster

Total Reading Time: 3.5 hours

Review: I really liked how accessible this book felt. I knew it was trying to teach me something but it wasn’t boring and I didn’t feel liked I was sitting in a lecture. It also doesn’t just espouse one view and lets readers have their own opinions, which I appreciated. Overall, very well done and I wish my high school lit classes explained symbolism & irony like Prof. Foster. Maybe then I would have understood “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” and actually liked it as so many people seem to.
