How to Read Novels Like a Professor

A Jaunty Exploration of the Worlds Favorite Literary Form

Out of all literary forms, the novel is arguably the most discussed -- and the most fretted over. Popular opinion held that La Princess de Clèves, Madame de Lafayettes seventeenth-century masterpiece, was the first legitimate entry in the category, letting open the floodgates that would lead to Abbé Prévost, Jane Austen, Gustave Flaubert, Edith Wharton, Henry James, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, and onward. But then there are the revisionists who look to much earlier literature -- The Epic of Gilgamesh, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, and the like -- as harbingers and of, early forays into, that great art form. In How to Read a Novel Like a Professor, tried-and-true sage, scholar, and all-around good guy Tom Foster teaches readers how to consider these historical fine points as well as a careers worth of insight and dissection while tackling some of the most famous novels in literary history. Ranging from the major themes (such as seasons, sex, vampires, violence, quests and geography), to literary models (the Bible, Shakespeare, Greek mythology and fairy tales), and narrative devices (irony, plot and symbol), HOW TO READ A NOVEL LIKE A PROFESSOR gives us a broad overview of literature and shows us how to make reading it more rewarding and fun.
