Abstract

Ways of Reading is a best-selling core textbook for undergraduate students of English language and literature, providing readers with the tools to analyse and interpret the meanings of literary and non-literary texts. Six sections, comprising 25 self-contained units, cover: techniques of analysis and problem solving; language variation; attributing meaning; poetic uses of language; narrative; and drama / performance texts. The book combines the linguistic and literary background to each topic with discussion of examples from books, poems, magazines and online sources, and links those examples to follow-up practical activities and a list of titles for further reading. The 4th edition has been redesigned and updated throughout.
