Literary Analysis Guide is an essential tool for anyone studying literature or rhetoric in high school or college. Whether preparing for your Advanced Placement (AP) English Literature and Composition exam or writing a paper for a graduate-level literature course, Literary Analysis Guide will help you on your way.
By arranging the elements of literature graphically around three wheels (poetry, prose, and rhetoric), teachers and students are better able to visualize how the elements of literature develop style and meaning. Click on any of the literary terms listed around the wheels, and a screen appears with a detailed definition of the term, several examples from literature, and additional questions to ask yourself about how that device is employed in the literature you are currently studying. Click on “Figures of Speech” from any of the three wheels, and the “Figures of Speech Wheel” appears, which functions in the same way as the three others.
Literary Analysis Guide was developed by a college English professor with extensive secondary experience and is appropriate for all levels from secondary through graduate-level university academics.
