A Beginner's Guide to Critical Reading
Author: Richard Jacobs
Aimed at AS, A2 and undergraduate students, A Beginner's Guide to Critical Reading brings literature to
life by combining a rich selection of literary texts with original and lively commentary. Unlike so many
introductions to literary studies, it demonstrates how criticism and theory can enhance your own
enjoyment and appreciation of literature.
